Many of you reading this blog know that Kate, Mary, Jackson, and I had a very scary event happen to us on Sunday. After having a nice lunch with some friends of ours in the downtown mall in Charlottesville, we were walking back to our car and Mary stopped breathing in the stroller. Luckily, thanks to our quick response and the help of lots of people nearby, we got Mary cleared out and breathing again. The ambulance was there almost immediately and Mary was in the ER within minutes. We were back home the same night and Mary is doing fine.
After something like this happens it makes you sit back and think of all the things we have to be thankful for. Here is a small list and some pictures of all the things I am thankful for:
-two wonderful kids
-a loving wife
-great family and friends who pray for us all the time
-our nurse who told us to always carry the "ambu bag" in the stroller with us when we go out
-the people on the street who called 911 and rushed to help us in our time of need
-ambulance crews/first responders/and emergency personnel
-our doctors and nurses (too many to mention by name!)
-the soldiers fighting overseas for our freedom
-The Lord our Father
Hope you enjoy the pictures. . . .
