A Little Break...
She looks so happy - I wish I could leave the tubes off. She is within her prescribed oxygen range. However, the oxygen dilates her blood vessels making her whole system work better. She makes fewer extra blood vessels when she's on oxygen full time. These extra blood vessels are bad--they make her circulatory system less efficient. So, they surgically plug them when she gets too many that are too big. So, time to put the oxygen back on.
I miss being a little kid. I miss being irresponsible and just going after what I want instead of thinking things through to their natural consequences. I miss being too scared to try new things. I miss jumping on the tramp all day and into the night with my lil brother. I miss watching the clouds roll by; imitating the hawk calls; star gazing.
I hope my kids are having lots of fun they'll miss when they're older, too.
