Today, I am thankful for Emergency Rooms. Our son had an earache that just would not go away. We finally had to break down and take him in the middle of Sunday night to the ER. He is now on his second day of antibiotics, ear drops and pain pills.
Is he feeling better? Well, not very much…yet. His pain has gone down from a “10” to a “9.5”. We are hoping and praying it will go down more by tomorrow. If not, we may need to take him in to see the doctor.
I am also thankful that the L-rd is my Provider and that we have a dear friend who is going to help me negotiate the bill down once it comes in.
His antibiotic was free at the pharmacy and the pain pills did not cost much. Yay! The ear drops were given to us at the hospital. I don’t know how much they will charge, but I know that last time we could not get them from the pharmacy because they were very, very expensive. This way we can negotiate cost and payment.
I am grateful we have a vehicle and that we had plenty of gas Sunday night.
Another good thing is that there were not many people in the ER.
I could go on and on about our many blessings, but these are the ones I am focusing on today.
