While the terrible over-snowing, extreme-freezing winter has affected most of the entire country, we feel for the fellow high-risk folks the most! Like most high-risk and trached families, flu season means becoming a hermit - from October to April, we barely leave our home, trying to keep nasty infections at bay. Because Judah is trached, a simple cold finds its way directly into his lungs, and his cardiac issues mean several weeks at best to completely overcome any sickness. At the beginning of the winter season, I had a list of creative plans to keep our "hibernation" fun. I turned an unused corner of the room into a reading nook. I transformed a boring hallway into an enchanted forest. Gramma and Grampa even provided a trike that has been hours of indoor fun for Judah.
But now it's time to GO OUTSIDE!!!! Judah spends a lot of time begging to be outdoors, and I am so proud that he seems to love to be out in nature so much. But now is that tenuous time - flu season has not yet completely passed, and the temperatures are not yet temperate.
We will be patient like everyone else in almost the entire country, and grab every semi-nice day that comes our way. Spring WILL COME and we will be ready!!!
