Today I’m sharing some updates and highlights from the last month.


I’ve been really enjoying walks with my boyfriend and his English Bulldog, Winston. I miss being able to spend as much time together. I won’t take being able to sit on the couch together and watch Netflix for granted again! It’s been quite awhile since we’ve last been able to do that due to Covid restrictions. Not only do I get to spend time with the two of them, but I also get to enjoy the warmer spring weather with them. Not having to worry about the cold and snow has made walks much more pleasant. We talked about taking Winston to a dog park soon. He loves meeting new dogs so I’m sure he’ll have a blast.

Medical appointments

It feels like I’ve had a ton of medical appointments this month. I’ve had 1 or 2 every week this month. Because of Covid most of them have been online or by phone which is kind of nice. I don’t have to worry about traffic or having to pay to park. On the other hand it still feels kind of strange to be doing appointments that aren’t in person. Last week I met one of my healthcare providers in person for the first time. I’ve been seeing once per month since October, but until now they’ve always been online appointments. It was definitely a bit weird for it to be in person.


Speaking of medical stuff and Covid, My dad and brother have now both gotten their first vaccine. It’s a huge relief to know that they have at least partial protection from the virus. I actually drove my brother to Red Deer (1.5 hours north of Calgary) to get his because there weren’t any options in Calgary that fit his work schedule. I’ll be very happy once they’ve both gotten their second doses and are as protected as possible. I won’t qualify to get a vaccine until late May or June.
