after the race!

is the trunk of the van a sterile environment for preparing a g-tube feed?

Well, Janneke and I ran that hill in the Old Mill run after all. Last night, the two of us slipped out to Ancaster for a good 5K race. It was nice to share the event with cousins Dan and Sheila and (almost cousins) Dave and Amy. We ran without stopping, yet I had to slow down considerably to avoid running over three different squirt soccer teams who also ran the 5K. I felt like they swarmed the stroller for most of the race. Wouldn't we like to tap into that energy!

Janneke was a great co-runner, and like Rachel, she finished just ahead of me. She did not enjoy running before, but she seems to have changed her mind! Thank you to the Bosmas and Anne V who were cheering for us at the top of the final hill -that was very encouraging.

With Rachel and/or Janneke, we will continue to run. We look forward to the next race; it's tiring, but it is empowering.

Rachel is still recovering slowly, but her progress today has been hindered by another fever. We have been discussing her symptoms with the pediatrician. I feel a bit frustrated with what appears to be more discomfort or pain for my baby. Pray for healing for Rachel.
