I am grateful we were able to provide a safe space for Sam's sister to spend the night last night so she did not need to stay in a hotel room. I am grateful the medical staff at Strong was able to remove the fluid from around his heart so they could perform the surgery this morning to install the LVAD which will keep him alive and make this a very special thanksgiving for this family. I am grateful that the Forsythe Hinkson family is on the mend and that they too can have a very special thanksgiving. I am grateful for my friends Woody and Laura who have made sacrifices in their own life this year to help a friend who is struggling emotionally this year. I am grateful that I make choices in my life each day which enable me to live with integrity and not violate the law or my own value system.
