Happy 91 years !!

 Today I went to a birthday party, but, not just a simple party, the lady turned 91 years old and she is as beautiful as she was when I first met her when I was a kid.
I remember going at her house and in the backyard she has this amazing secret garden when she was always surrounded by lots of flowers, trees and everything green and magical for a child´s eyes...

And today we celebrated her 91st birthday with a delicious Paella made by her daughter, my good friend Keiko and all these yummy food you´ll see below.

At the hospital

 In November, the 2nd, César couldn´t sleep and he couldn´t stop coughing so we took him to the hospital and then we stayed right there for 2 nights and 3 days.

 There were terrible days for us, he´s got Bronchiolitis and  I stayed with him and he wasn´t allowed to get out of the room , isolated and only watching TV or sleeping , there weren´t toys so his dad got some from home on the next day.
But I can tell that this Hospital Sabará has surprised us for the excellence of treatment, cleaning, size of the room and private bathroom ideal for babies and toddlers, nice food and friendly nurses and doctors and physiotherapist.

Below  ::  the sign on the door for the visitors asking them to put masks, gloves and apron.

 This is the view from the window, São Paulo city and the sky scrapers, lots of them!

 Here he is, eating some bread and spending his time watching TV, poor boy...

 Kid´s meal and...

Mommy´s breakfast

It was a great experience, we learned a lot about Bronchiolitis that is basically the inflammation of the bronchioles that reduces the amount of air entering the lungs, making it more difficult to breathe. It affects babies and young children and there is no medication to kill the viruses that cause bronchiolitis, but the infection usually clears up within two weeks , in his case he had to do a lot of inhalation which was the terrible part of the treatment.

But I´m very happy to say that now he is feeling well and he is running and playing around the house as usual, phew, what a week!!

Wishing you many wonderful days!!!
