Still going...

Hubby's still in the hosp. He's in so much pain. They took him off of the introvinous (sp?) pain meds & put him on pill form. Something about getting his system used to it for when he goes home. Of course it doesn't work anywhere near as good & takes a long time to take effect. Ugh!

If he keeps the pain like he has now, I don't see him going home any time soon. The pain just isn't getting any better at all.

Doc says he might get to go home tomorrow. I can't imagine him being in this much pain at home, though. I'm sure we'd end up right back in the er.

On a slightly lighter note, I was back on plan again today. Last night I stuck to fruit & veggies for dinner. Then today every thing was normal food untill dinner tonight in the hosp. I had grilled (tasteless) chicken with steamed carrots & a side of fresh fruit.

When I weighed myself this morning, I wad up 3 pounds since Saturday's weigh in. Big surprise there (not). Oh, well. I didn't go biking this morning either. At 5:15 this morning, I was so tired my body ached. I had to hit snooze & sleep another 2 hours. I want so badly to go walking with the girls in the morning but here I sit in the dark, by hubbys hosp bed blogging on my blackberry at 12:30 am. Hubby just finally got to sleep. I don't know how long he'll stay asleep. I'm gonna get some sleep while he's out. I think walking in the morning is probably out of the question.

I'm so sorry hubby isn't getting better as soon as you'd expected. And I'm so sorry you are going through so much right now. Hang in there, it's bound to get better soon.

Oh, Cara...I'm so sorry your man is in such bad shape! Do they know what is causing the pain?

Take care of yourself and don't stress about exercising - being there for hubby is more important right now.

I'll be praying for you both!

Cara, so sorry to hear about your hubby not feeling any better. I can't believe they would send him home while still being in so much pain. Do they know what's causing it? I agree with Karyn, your main focus should be your hubby right now and not stressing about exercising and pounds. Give him my best wishes. I'll be praying for him.

I'm hoping the best for your hubby. I remember too well the many nights I slept on those weird and not very comfy hospital chair-recliners while mom was an inpatient (weekly) for years. It was exhausting, and I always ate too much in the cafeteria (emotional eating, bored eating).

Your three pounds up could be salt, maybe?

Just find ways to talk and find positive stuff in the midst of the awfulness. This too shall pass.

Best to you,
The Princess
