Buddha Arse

That's me at the moment. I am sitting at the computer looking at my reflection in the window and I'm looking awfully like a buddha, except there is no gleeful little smile on my dial.

So what has happened in the last four months??

Sian has spent another two nights in hospital, going by ambulance both times for her asthma. The last time was at 2.30am in the morning and when the ambulance finally made it all the way out here her oxygen stats were only 77!! I was very scared - it's a long 45 minute drive from here to Christchurch Hospital and she was on oxygen and ventolin by nebuliser the whole way there with the oxygen stats not even lifting that much...

She seems to have come through the other side of it though and just went through a really bad flu without having to be hospitalised which was a great bonus.

Now she is back at preschool three days a week which is brilliant for me and my study.

I have been very busy with my Naturopathy units and have a couple to get in before I finish Module 1 of 7. Took me a while to get over the fact that I had to redo a lot of the units that I have already passed and have NZQA recognition for but once I got there eventually. Sometimes you just have to let things go....

Anyway, my new motto is:

We can not become what we need to be by remaining what we are - Max Dupree

I can't even begin to imagine how terrifying Sian's asthma situations have been! Glad to hear she made it through her flu OK.

Love the motto!!!

I need to adopt your new motto for myself.

I'm very sorry to hear about your daughter's asthma. That must be terrifying. I wish they could find a total cure for allergies and asthma. One day they will, but I wish it was today.

great to see you are about, and continuing the study as best as you can. I hope your little one grows out of the asthma, or at the very least the incidence of it becomes very very rare. My eldest had it very bad when he was little, and then, luckily, it just racked off. I put him into swimming, and fed him Manuka honey daily, they (the specialists) encouraged me to do this with him. Perhaps it was luck? But I pass it onto anyone who will listen, because it just might work you know.

but it is. I’d like to suggest one or two remarks for a preface — if any. The discovery of the dead mother and the dialogue with the Carline struck me very much. Clearly Swanhild needed no witchcraft
