Taking it easy
Miss B had developed a cold... Then her breathing seemed faster than usual so I thought I'd just take her into the our local walk-in clinic for a quick lung listen by a professional. Fully expecting to be told it was fine, just a cold. Not the case at all. We ended up in the ER with Bronchiolitis. Breathing stuff is scary!! So thankful for such wonderful medical staff! And the next day at the follow-up a double ear infection!
So last week we were laying low. Miss B missing her friends and dance class too : ( We were itching to get outside, so we decided a short fall stroll through lovely Vaughan woods was in order. Sunlight and fresh air are healing no? Well, actually this did not work out well at all, Miss B got quite winded quite fast, and the woods were full of babies and their people! We spent our time trying to slowly stroll back to the car, while taking the trails less traveled and going off trail to avoid the little ones and sharing our sickness. Crazy! We felt like spies sort of. Miss B was very good about it all.
I remember as a child my own mother took me to the beach one time after a doctor appointment, for the sea air to work it's magic. This seemed a lot like playing hooky to me and it was thrilling.
Miss B just loves fall - its powers of transformation. Each day feels like a holiday...maybe the trees will look different. The discovery of one beautiful leaf after another.
We're back to our regular things this week, but I/we still feel worn out. But I have missed this space and will work on getting back in here. I do appreciate your patience.
Wishing you a restful day.
