Today I am thankful for the technology I have that keeps me connected, brings me joy, and gives me an occasional escape. I am thankful for my computer. It allows me to research so many topics including options for the best treatment plan. It allows me to talk to family and friends through email and Facebook. I am thankful for my Ipod for keeping me sane when Brad is at work. I listen to it all day and it provides me with such peace. There has been so many times that listening to music has been a pick me up for when I have been down. I am thankful for my cell phone. I am constantly on it during the day talking to doctors, nurses, front desks, therapists, friends, and family. I am thankful for our TV and that it provides me the means to watch my favorite shows, Glee, Grey’s, Real Housewives, Regis and Kelly, Oprah, The Today Show, The Office, and Modern Family. I am thankful for DVR. I think it is pretty much the best invention ever. I am thankful for my plug-in massage pillow, my cervical traction unit, my TENS unit, and my heating pad. I am thankful for our microwave because I can’t cook.
