We left Saturday,
by Monday night we were in Ottawa.
Tuesday night we were at my Ottawa parish
for the Feast of Transfiguration,
By early hours Wednesday morning
I fell quite ill, husband falling ill just hours later.
Our plans for Wed-Friday were totally derailed;
visits to dear friends, seeing my godson,
going to the Greek monastery in Quebec,
walking around old Montreal,
none of it happened.
We made it to most of my friend's wedding in Montreal on
Saturday later afternoon.
That was huge, to be there...
we really did not know if we would make it at all,
we saw a doctor that day and everything...
We were too sick to go to the reception.
It was very disappointing!
But that we actual got to be at the wedding was wonderful.
We drove back home yesterday,
miraculously having the strength to drive the 6 hours plus
a 3 hour wait at the Canadian/US boarder.
We are so glad to be home.
Still tired but hoping that we are indeed past the 4 days of
A simple meal of chicken noodle soup
at Friendly's on the way home
gave us the strength,
and many people's prayers, to make it home.
I was never so glad to see this meal
of dry toast and chicken noodle soup!
We are hoping to be fully well soon
and we are so so glad to be home!
I may not blog as regularly this week
as I have a lot to catch up on
and of course resting from
I am so thankful that we normally are not
in this distressed state and that we
have a peaceful home to be in...
