That's my word for 2010. Instead of making the long list of resolutions, I'm following some other blogging friends and choosing a word to represent how I would like for my 2010 year to be.Yes, wellness would be NICE. It would be nice not to have to be a patient in a hospital, go through any more surgeries, be sick, or watch my child suffer through another illness. It would be nice not to find a lump on my throat, overdose my child or be overdosed by my doctor. It would be nice to not have my lung collapse, or fly across the United States on another medical flight, or find out that my child's surgery for his hearing failed. It would be nice not to have to chase anymore ambulances, worry about DNR's or injure myself while playing sports. It would be nice NOT be a regular visitor to the ER, have a child's joints swell and be painful or have my husband lose any more teeth. It would be nice to not have to witness any more seizures, add one more scar to my body or have a child that deals with chronic gut issues. It would be nice not to have to have any more IV's blow, call my child's neurologist in an emergency situation or sleep over 100 nights in the PICU up at Dartmouth. Yes my friends...WELLNESS is my goal. Not only in health, but in mind, body and most importantly spirit.
