Yesterday, at my nephews birthday party, I was pulled aside to be thanked by two of the mothers attending. The week of Christmas, I went over to my sister’s house to bake cookies. While there, my brother in law called me over to my sister’s friend and next door neighbor’s home to do CPR. I was able to keep her heart beating for the paramedics. Unfortunately, she passed away several days later. The mothers at the party said I gave them a few more days with their mother.

Today, I am particularly thankful for the current state of technology. My sick cat, Mia, had medical tests to find out why she is sick.
