The hospice is a few minutes walk from a canal, and one afternoon, between feeds and meds, when the weather was mild and the sun out, we took Kai for his first walk in a month. Leaving the hospice together, just us, was heavenly, and I felt (just for a moment) a bit normal.
It was lovely. There were people walking their dogs and children in gummies and just, the perfect way to spend an afternoon. We weren't on our way to a hospital, or a medical appointment. It was just us three. Bliss.
We don't often get the chance to do things like this, so I appreciate it so so much when we do.
