We’ve now been out of our house and on the road for a full two weeks. Can’t believe it – it’s flown by and we are nowhere near feeling like we’re done yet, which I suppose is good! Road life seems to suit us well so far – we are enjoying seeing and doing new things together. June has been doing reasonably well since the last update – she hasn’t had any seizures, and overall seems to be feeling well most days. She is still having intermittent pain in her head and blood showing up in her gastric drainage, which we are still assuming is coming from her sinuses. We have been using a steroid nasal spray along with a humidifier at night to help give her some relief which seems to be working. Other than that, nothing major to report, which is always a good thing for June.
Since our last post, we’ve moved on from Hinton/Jasper (after spending our last day at Talbot Lake in Jasper NP) and spent 5 nights in a really nice campground just outside Edmonton in a town called Devon. We had a lovely grassy spot overlooking the North Saskatchewan River and used it as a base to explore the Edmonton area. Unfortunately, many of the things we wanted to see or do were closed but we got to see the Alberta legislature & day-tripped out to Elk Island NP where we saw beavers and Bison. We also took the opportunity to slow down and enjoyed a few days relaxing on our site. Oliver bought himself a new RC boat and loved being above to drive it just across the street from our site!
Today we arrived in Drumheller AB and after getting set up went for a drive to explore the badlands around the Royal Tyrrell Museum and see the surrounding area. It is stunningly beautiful here!
