Sick Boy Gratitude

Youngest son is home from school today.  He had not been feeling very well for a couple of days but I thought it was just a cold.  When I did not get better and he complained of an increasing sore throat I became concerned.  Since he is without health insurance right now, I did not really have a place to take him.  T offered to see him at his clinic.  I thought that was really nice and I took him up on his offer.

It turned out that my son did have an infection and needed an antibiotic.  T prescribed it and sent me across the street to his sister's pharmacy.  She filled it and then refused to take my money.  It was a generic and cheap antibiotic, and I could have paid for it, but she said something about my having to put up with T was payment enough.

Anyway, the whole thing was a useful reminder that even though I do not have a huge support network like some people, I am not alone.  I have people who care about me and for that I am grateful.
