Return to Work!!

Hey everyone!! 

Life with Griffin is going awesome!! He is such a sweet, chill and happy little dude!! Growing soooo fast! Cedar is really good with him and is very gentle. She licks him a lot and will even join him with a howl when he is crying sometimes :) 

I took another course this past weekend and left Greg alone with Griff and Cedar for 3 full days (coming home every night) and they all really enjoyed themselves. SO... I decided I will come back to work for just a few hours a week and see how it goes. I am really excited to share some of the new things I learned and look forward to seeing how the results might improve some of your discomforts and help your healing. 

I will be working out of Canopy, but booking will be done through this website. I will be only doing a few hours, one morning a week to start, and will only be opening it up a week at a time to start. I will request that you can pay with cash or e-transfer, but I can take Credit Cards if required, and receipts will be e-mailed, but can be printed if requested.

I look forward to seeing you soon and getting back to the work that I love doing so much!!

Baby Has Arrived!!!!

Griffin Alix Douglas Magoon was born Monday, February 19, 2018 at 12:47pm in Squamish General Hospital, weighing in at 6lbs, 14oz, and a length of 47cm (18in). My Labour was 10-11hrs from start to finish. I brought Griffin into the world with no drugs (not even advil!) and no tearing!! I did have to push for 3.5hrs, but overall, a pretty amazing experience!!

Griffin was having a bit of respiratory distress right after delivery, so after spending a couple hours trying to stabilize him on a CPAP machine, they decided to transfer him to Lions Gate, as there are no paediatricians in Squamish. The Infant Transfer Team were called and transferred him to Lions Gate. Greg followed in his car and I had to wait for an ambulance transfer, which ended up being a couple hours later. On their way to Lions Gate Griffin had a seizure and so was then sent to Children's Hospital. Again, Greg followed in his car. 

We ended up spending 5 days at Children's Hospital while they ran the whole gamut of tests to find out the cause of the seizure (EEGs, Ultrasound, MRI, Lumbar Puncture, blood tests, etc) He only had the one on the way to Lions Gate, and otherwise was totally stable. Every test that they ran came back as clear! He was such a trooper the whole time. They would come in to take his blood, and he would not even wake up. He slept through his MRI and everything!!

At the end of the day, they basically told us we have a healthy, happy, and super chill baby!! The nurses and doctors were all very impressed by him, and thrilled to see him thriving so well. We were discharged and headed home on the Friday. 

We are all doing so well and loving life together so far!! Greg is off work for 3wks, so it is a great treat to be able to spend so much time together as we bond and get to know Griff. He is such a chill babe, and we could not be more elated. Cedar is also doing great with him. She gives him sniffs and kisses, and when he cries she rushes over to check him out and make sure everyone is ok :)

Thank you everyone for support and well wishes. The Ladies over at Canopy said many of you kept asking about how we were doing and if baby had arrived. We really appreciate it and thank you so much for keeping us in your thoughts!!

I will keep you posted on how we are all doing and also on when I plan to return to work :)

Happy New Years!!

Wishing all of you the health and joy for 2018!!!

I want to start by thanking all of my amazing clients for your support, encouragement, advise, gifts and for choosing me as a part of your health care team!! I have truly enjoyed my time working with all of you and look forward to hopefully working with you again in the future. 

Life as we know it, will be changing in only a few short weeks. With baby Magoon on the way, I am no totally sure what our future will look like, but we are very excited about the Journey ahead. In terms of working, I will be finishing up at the end of January and taking sometime off to raise our little bundle of joy. At this time, I am thinking of taking about 6months off, but only time will tell what will be the right decision for our little family. I will post updates here, as our story unfolds.

I have had many of you request updates on the little one, such as his arrival, name, etc, so I will do so on here. We very much appreciate all your love and support for us and our little dude.

Thank you again for everything over the last several years of working together! I wish you all blessing, love and healthy bodies moving into 2018!! Happy New Year and Blessings to you and your families!

In Health,

Minda
