I am now back home, I had 4 nightshifts and they were all busy, one of those nights I was the charge nurse and I was busy the whole night! I love nights like that!
I tried really hard to keep on track with my eating but the drinking was the problem. I was please when I weighed this morning - I had lost 2 pounds over the week! I managed to get to Curves while I was gone too! I plan on going again today, probably this afternoon when it is warmer! Have laundry etc to catch up on this morning! While I was gone my husband had to go to Texas to pick up a friends truck on our trailer, so my kids were staying with other people, so our cat is crying out for attention today!
While I was gone, 2 of my friends had a crisis so I would appreciate prayers for them both. One of my friends is 22 weeks pregnant and my son was staying with her when she started having problems with her BP and she has a cardiac condition, so he went to stay with another friend, but she would appreciate prayers for her pregnancy as well as her health, she is doing better now and has an ultrasound and ECHO scheduled for Monday. My other friend's mother has pancreatic cancer and became unresponsive over the weekend and was admitted to the hospital by ambulance, seems that she had had a heart attack, has a blood clot in her lung, has pneumonia and is septic from a urine infection! Last night they told my friend that she is in the end stages, so would appreciate prayers for them too! She now just wants to take her mother home!
I am so glad to work with a fantastic group of nurses and with a great manager who have all come around my friend and are donating PTO so that she can stay home with her mom!
On a brighter note! I am thrilled that today I have been named the 50 Pound Challenge Team's "TEAM FAMILY MEMBER OF THE DAY!" for November 23rd. I told my husband that I am to be treated as the queen today and he said that is everyday!
Thanks for all your support and encouragement!
