Just one of those days.

Our Doctor doesn't recommend travelling particularly in Winter. Since his immune system is down, we've been pretty limited to staying at home. I have even restricted certain visitors because it's important he doesn't get sick.

I woke up this morning, after the day we had yesterday, and decided I wanted to go away for the weekend. I don't like that the extent of his 'outtings' during the day is from home to the Doctors. We can't go to the movies because he can't see anything. We can't go to restaurants because he can't eat anything. We can't go visit with family members locally because they all have kids and we all know kids are germs on legs.

We're getting out of town for the weekend. It takes 6 hours - for a normal driver - to get to Auckland from The Bay. That's 6 (4 maybe) hours in a car with the sun shining in on him. 3 days in my sisters overly sterile house and 3 days with our 2 year old niece Larell, who thinks she's an elephant, and is the light in my husbands life right now.

Sometimes Doctors advise not to have happiness in your life when it's needed.
We deserve it. He deserves it.
