Yellowstone Day 2

Who knew that Yellowstone was 7000 feet in elevation? This is good information to know when traveling with a medically fragile child. 

Last night we had a slight scare. Our cutest boy was in a mood, grouchy and constantly shaking his head "no."   He had started crying, was shaking his head and generally being crabby. It seemed a bit out of character since he had been happy all day, but we let him rest and did some treatments to moisten his lungs. All of the sudden he was coughing and struggling to breathe. Some focused suctioning for some time produced bits of a large plug. Once it was cleared he was back to his happy self. 

This morning I found out about the elevation and it all began to make sense. Another reminder that traveling with a medically fragile child requires more knowledge and on this one I definitely dropped the ball!!

This reminds me of life in general and our need to be prepared but also roll with the punches. We never truly know what lies in our future and we need to be prepared for the unexpected. 

This ability to be flexible...to go with the flow of life is what makes us better and stronger people. If we can remember that Life is...we will do much better because there are no limits on what we can do.
