Thankful for family today : FSGS Sucks

So, this weekend was my daughter's birthday.  Well, it was actually last Thursday, but we were having the party on Saturday.  And, wouldn't you know it, it was hot as hell.  Seriously.  Hot.

And my feet were not being very accommodating.  I'm just thankful that my family tried to help me out.  They kept telling me to sit down and put my feet up, and so I did.  It was hard for me..made me feel SOOO guilty, but the pain of walking outweighed that guilt.

They helped me in soooo many ways this weekend, and I'm terribly grateful.

    Happy Birthday to your little girl! We have one coming up this weekend - hoping for less heat than you had! :)
