STRAWBERRY DESSERT

I did not intend to post this Strawberry Dessert, but because of my daughter, and for my daughter, I am going to share it with the rest of you. It’s become her favorite, and today she deserves to eat a ton of it!

I recently mentioned that my daughter, Ana, ended up in the Emergency Room last week,  two times within 12 hours because of a high fever. A few short days later we were back at Urgent Care and we learned that this could be more serious because after a few tests (poor girl – needles, tubes, catheters, etc.…), the results showed that, among other things, her blood count was off, and that her blood platelets were too low.

Needless to say, this past week I have been living on pins and needles. I haven’t slept, I haven’t worked much… I have just been sitting above her night and day – kissing her, hugging her, and praying.

Fortunately, those prayers were answered.

Yesterday we found out that it was only a nasty flu, and it was the virus that caused the platelets to misbehave. The results showed that her blood count is NORMAL!

You can imagine the relief I felt after that phone call – I cried like a child, I picked her up and kissed her from head to toe, twirled her around, and kissed her some more.

Parenthood is one heck of a job –  it’s the most rewarding, fulfilling, and the bestestest job I have ever had.
