Thankful on day 7 for...

Aspirin. Would you not agree it is a miracle drug? It seems that those little white pills can prevent or cure almost anything! It is the only drug that can come close to touching my headaches. My doctors give the baby version partial credit for helping keep Alyssa and Parker safe in my womb. Aspirin can prevent strokes, heart attacks and maybe some kinds of cancer. It can minimize the damage of a heart attack., reduce a fever, treat arthritis, and perhaps prevent the formation of cataracts. Veterinarians even sometimes use aspirin to help cats, dogs and horses. Pretty amazing stuff! It's not without its side effects, but I think aspirin is one unique, incredibly useful gift from God. I'll be even more thankful for it when I start feeling the effects of the two pills I'm going to take right now!

We used to have a dog with a heart condition. We had to give him baby aspirin all the time! It is a great thing. Hope that you are feeling better quickly!

Sorry you have a headache--and to think, if I'd known before 9:30 p.m. I might have been able to talk you into letting the kids spend the night!!

Love, Mom
