It seems Steem isn't cooperating for me at the moment to reply and upvote the comments made but, they are all appreciated. As you can see from the picture, she hasn't lost her sense of humour yet. My wife is there with her while I dropped back home to prepare some more foods for her as she will be in hospital at least tonight also.
We have gone through quite a lot of this over the last few years and each time it causes evaluation of circumstances, life and our position in it. Although I am grateful for many things, with every one of these types of events, I realize that I have to be more prepared than I currently am. Yes, all of it could work and my daughter will 'grow-out' of some of these things but, I do not think she will ever experience being completely free physically. She has been given her lot though and I will help her do the best possible with it.
My part in that as a parent is being prepared and with every event, I find more and more weakness and areas of opportunity to grow. With the last week being what it was, financial stability needs to become somewhat of a priority in my life as the way we are currently living, it causes far too many problems. Healthcare in the future is going to get increasingly expensive and if my daughter is going to have a lifetime of issues, I better take care of that now.
Steem might take care of it also but, that is a risky bet and I am going to have to do more in the real world to try to increase chances and spread probabilities. I am not sure what this is going to be yet but, I have to start taking it more seriously, especially if we plan on living in another country where healthcare may not be as affordable.
But, that is not what this post is about.
I will be gone the rest of the day and since I can't vote on comments yet, my VP is dangerously close to 100 so, I am giving away 6 x 50% votes on links posted that are:
- of decent quality
- people powering up (at least, not powering down)
- people who have consistent, quality content in their blog roll
- people who have thoughtful comments.
- posted in the comments section in next 45 minutes or so. (the post itself can be older of course)
Note: long-time supporters who engage in comments well will have increased chances
My vote is worth ~6$ at the moment so about $3 dollars for 50%. It is not much but perhaps one day with a little market luck, it will get someone out of a sticky situation.
This is not the way I would normally curate however I just don't have the time to spare currently but I think it would be a waste not to use it.
Good luck and I promise that I will do my best to get to previous comments later....

Instead of 6 x 50% I gave a little less but curated more for about 500% of votes instead of 300%. Congrats to the "winners" who was everyone who posted up until the time I voted.
