Today will be a quiet home day. I have healing chicken broth simmering, I might make some egg custard for dessert and perhaps some quick baking.....
Henry is much better, he is still having Ventolin 2-4hrly and is on steroids to help open his airways but his chest is much more relaxed, and his breathing gentler. The poor fella is feeling quite angry and agitated because of all the medication but I'm so happy to see him breathing better. It never gets easier when you watch your child struggle for breath. I will never get used to it, despite being here many, many times before. Every time I give thanks to the fact I am a mama in Australia, with access to good medications and health care. We are so very fortunate.
We were meant to hold our little bible study group last night, but we didn't do the study part, I was too tired from the night before. They just came around for a quick cuppa and a chat. Then a little later on a couple of friends from church came around with a lasagna for our family and some chocolate. I love these people, a reminder that family can take so many different forms. How did we get so lucky?
