A few years ago, with 3 young kids, one of whom was classified as 'medically fragile', I joked that we were helping our pediatrician buy a new car. For a while, we were seeing the pediatrician almost every day, but once in a while we would have a 2 or 3 week stretch without seeing him. Those few week stretches felt amazing at the time.
Fast forward to today, we haven't seen the pediatrician (any pediatrician) in 6 months. Again, SIX MONTHS! It is beyond imagination! The last time we saw our pediatrician was right before Matthew's bowel obstruction surgery, which was 6 months ago this weekend.
I've said it before (I'm going to keep saying it, so sorry if it is getting old)-- life is good! Thanks be to God!
