Today it snowed. In Edmonton. On September 13th. I’m not the type who hates winter, who curses the cold, and counts down the days until it is Spring. But I’ll admit, it’s a little early this year even for me! So instead of going outside to do the location scouting I had planned, I’m going to cozy up with some green tea, Dutch radio, and my computer.
Do any of you blog? It’s an interesting thing. I love being able to reflect on the work I have done and to be able to share it with others. Yet, when life gets busy, my world gets smaller and communicating with the online world gets forgotten. So why am I coming on here today? There have been many interesting and special sessions over the past months, but a session I had earlier this week really touched me.
Excitement mixed with fear at her “20 week” ultrasound. They were going to have a little boy! But he was wanting to arrive in this world WAY too soon. An emergency flight from Yellowknife down to Edmonton’s NICU, and five days later at just 24 weeks little Benjamin was born. This family has spent the past 9 weeks in NICU and they have about another 7 weeks to go. I can’t quite imagine what it must be like to have your world so unexpectedly turned upside with the stress of a fragile baby and hundreds of miles away from home. That’s something to just sit and think about for a minute.
Please send all your good vibes to this little guy that he stays strong and keeps growing.
P.S. Did you know that I do free in-hospital sessions for families with babies in NICU? Message me for more information.
