The past two days have been rough. We went to the beach again on Thursday and that night Adrianna had a fever of 104. The next morning her fever broke and she ate some watermelon and peaches which helped to restore electrolytes. After a worthless visit to her pediatrician, she rested and nursed the whole day. Yesterday she seemed back to normal but as the day progressed her fever returned and she was back to nursing and sleeping on me all day. Her fever broke again last night, she slept seemingly well, and now she seems perfectly normal again. 🤞
A lot of things come to mind when your baby is sick, the first is what could have caused this?!And since I had a whole day with baby on me, I had plenty of time to research. My bet was that it was a bacterial infection from the water, she was trying to drink it 🤦♀️. The Chesapeake bay, like most bodies of water near big cities, has its fair share of pollution. Almost anywhere you go swimming there will be risk of bacteria and viruses, wether it’s from pollution or natural causes. Rather than live in fear, I trust that our immune systems have been built up by the plethora of nutrient rich food we eat. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?
Even so, events like this make my “save the planet mind” kick into full gear. I’m always thinking, how can I do better 🤔. It’s these very thoughts that urged me to create my purified lifestyle business. My mission is to educate people on how to live more clean and pure, and to help organize all the information through the use of journals and thought provoking questions. Some days it feels like and uphill battle but there are a lot of amazing people trying to save the planet, maybe they’re outnumbered by the people who are destroying the planet, but nevertheless there is a growing number of people who care and that gives me solace.
One big way that we can limit pollution is by eating local organic food from the farmers. Why organic? Because pesticides and herbicides are leaching into our bodies of water causing a whole host of problems.
Why local? Because we can limit unnecessary cross country trips that use an obscene amount of fuel.
Let’s make a difference together!
