I am thankful that my step-siblings love my father, have worked together to help get his care at the hospital improved - even aa sister several states away lent her medical expertise by phone to help get the right answers from the right people. Not every family is fortunate enough to have that available. I am also thankful that my brother was able to come from his corporate job in another state, with his wife, and help care for our stepmother and coordinate matters. And I am thankful this happened before our stepmother left on a trip she had planned to take this week, and not during it.
While I would rather this whole situation had not happened, I am going to thank the Lord for those things that I can.
