"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Home Again!

Thank-you for your prayers! The trip back to Alberta went well! We are so amazed at how well our two older kids do with travelling now that they are older.  Rachel was great too.  We did notice that she was getting progressively 'bluer' as we neared Medicine Hat.  And while we were at the McDonalds in Medicine Hat, her breathing seemed 'gaspy' to me.  Her veins really stood out more than usual and her feet were purplish. But as we continued to drive, she really perked up again!  She is eating and sleeping well, and she is very happy:)  I just love how happy she is these days.  She is so eager to play with us.  One thing I am marvelling at these days is how incredibly flexible she is.  When I am feeding her, she reaches out her toes to play with the bottle and she can almost touch the part in her mouth.  I am pretty sure she has grown again in length - time for 6 month sleepers!

Glad we escaped Manitoba when we did! I hear the forecast for tomorrow is 37 degrees, without the humidex?  (98% F) Have fun you Manitobans;) Also, sorry we weren't able to visit with anyone besides family on this trip.  We needed to make the trip shorter because we didn't have respite for Rachel out there. Maybe next time!

Perhaps elevation is a factor . .has she ever had a spell in your short visits to Manitoba? There is a 500 meter difference between Winnipeg and Medicine Hat.
