Getting back to normal (sort of) :)

A month had just rushed us by like a light wind from the bowel on a breezy day (obviously, boarding school still have an influence on my taste of what is funny) :) After Matt came out from the hospital most of the worst was over, the high temp. and the vomiting was behind us, the red rash was however still there although it seems to come and go now, every morning and every night.

We began to suspect everything that may be the cause of his allergic reaction, dust?, Washing powder?, fabric conditioner?, strawberries?, pillow?, teddy bear?, even bread (this came from the Dr.). After everything we think we got the right one now, for the past several weeks a room near us was being painted and some days the smell was quite overwhelming, then we noticed the correlation between the bad ‘paint smell day’ and the amount of rash he had. Keeping everything constant I believe the correlation can now be upgrade to a causation… :)

DSC06341At the end of July, we decided to take a short break to the Rose Garden, that turned out to be another fantastic idea from Gio. To make things a little bit more interesting we decided to rent a Thai style house instead of staying in the Hotel, a change of pace was fantastic and it was just what I needed before starting a new job in August :)

Matt surprises us all in eating so many new things on this trip, from Pineapple (he calls it Mango), BBQ pork to jelly (that we believed he hated).


DSC06335Apparently Rose Garden is over 30 years old and quite popular with the tourists. I liked the culture village, enough different activities there to keep things interesting, although it must be a bit annoying if there were too many people.

Matt had a chance to make a buffalo from clay (wow, what a mess), touched a buffalo, and feed the elephants. Enough to entertain us most of the afternoon.

DSC06297I was totally paranoid on this elephant ride, with my weight and the heavy looking wooden seat I was convince the elephant was swearing at us with every step he/she took, lol.






From August on several things will change, well, for one thing, this new job of mine will eventually require me to travel a lot more, then there is Matt new school which will be a big change for the whole family (new time table for the whole house, lol), then the biggest change of all in November (touch wood), Matt’s little sister, I am more nervous this time round than the first, can not wait to hold her in my arms :)
