Today’s blog I’m going to talk about what I am thankful for. I’m still researching the right medical insurance plan. I will get back to that subject in a few weeks.
During this pandemic and the last four plus years I’ve gone through my share of successes and setbacks. I’ve had my feet operated on multiple times. I’ve had many laser treatments and shots to my eyes to correct my vision. All of these procedures were due to diabetes. You can read my past blogs to see what I’ve went through.
Today I just want to talk about what I’m thankful for, and not what I don’t have. This morning I took a walk in the park. Thanks to my foot doctor, nurses and therapists I can still walk due to successful operations and rehab.
Secondly, my vision has remained stable due to the care I’ve received from my eye doctor. I am thankful I can still see.
Third: I am grateful for my diabetic doctor who has helped me keep my A1C in the range of 5.0-5.5, which in turn has helped with all my medical issues.
To all the nurses and doctors who helped me stay healthy, I am thankful to them as well.
I am thankful most of all for my friends and family who have supported me through this process. I couldn’t have made it without them. When I was depressed and doubting my health they kept me optimistic and made me laugh.
All these friends, family, doctors and nurses I’ve mentioned are what keeps me alive and hopeful for the future. The best advice I can give is to be thankful for at least one positive in your life per day. Life’s too short to be bitter. Remember and honor all the people that have come in and out of your life, and left a positive memory with you. I know I’ll be saying a little prayer for all of them.
Happy Thanksgiving! Stay safe and healthy!
