One year ago today I checked into the hospital in hopes that it would help hurry the arrival of Levi. I was afraid and in pain. It took a few days, but the loving care of the doctors and nurses made all the difference.
First I am so thankful for nurses and doctors. They make all the difference when things get rough. I am especially thankful to the post partum nurses who helped me heal and also taught Justin and I how to care for Levi's basic needs.
A few weeks after Levi was born we got the bill for Levi's birth and my week in the hospital. It was close to $40,000. That really cemented my thankfulness for my healthcare. All people deserve good healthcare. I hope we see that one day in this country.
