Thankful Thursday 20th June

This week I am thankful for:

- Super Neighbour Kate's dedication to the cause of Tom by lining up at Aldi to be the crazy cat lady buying not one but SIX Talking Tom's (4 for Ashlea - do you think that's enough or should I go back for more???);

- a well stocked supply cupboard:

In Case of Emergency Tom's

- an appointment to discuss why Ashlea seems to have pain around her PEG site and an upper GI exam booked to investigate;

- last week's random temperature virus which meant I took Ashlea in for extra bloods which showed her tac level had gotten too low which meant we could increase her tacrolimus before her level dropped so low that she started rejecting her kidney (apologies if only other transplant patients understood that one);

- home modifications partially approved - the widening of the front door, lifter to access the front door, widening of Ashlea's bedroom door and the bathroom renovation have all been approved in theory - but because of the high cost we still need to go through several more levels of approval;

- the socceroos win that means Australia will be going to the world cup;

- these biscuits - I have a serious addiction going on:

Low salt chocolate biscuits!

- realising that the random payments into our account from Murray's work were a mistake before I had spent the money - so much harder to give it back after you've spent it;

And today I am going to request your prayers as well.  Last year when Murray was in hospital his immediate supervisor at work was very supportive - visiting Murray in hospital and at home and even organising fundraising activities so that they were able to give us a gift of $2500.  Sadly that man has had a serious mountain biking accident and is now himself in ICU.  Please pray for him and his family.

Thankful Thursday

I saw a talking Tom squeaky rubber toy today, and thought of you. I wasn't sure if it would be more annoying than the talking one though.

Thanks Naomi - but unless it repeats what you say she won't be interested!
