This week marks the deaths of my Mom and MIL 7 years ago, who died five days apart. It also brought us the death this year of BILfrom cancer..on the anniversary of MIL's death. It found me in the ER in severe respritory distress, with a houseful of much loved and long awaited company at home..I'm thrilled that I enjoyed two days with them before I crashed, so disappointed not to have been able to participate more during their stay. Now on steroids, feeling wonky and wondering how anyone can want to take those things on purpose? OMG. However, I can breathe..so it's a tradeoff. Both exercise and diet are thrust to the background as our family copes with our latest round of nonsense. At least I know how to exercise again when the Dr. says I can..and it's become a habit I miss when I can't do it during times like this. And I know how to eat healthy, so little damage will be done during these weeks of recuperation. Even DH (reluctantly our cook until I am better) knows about fruit and veggies these days..now that's victory!
