I took care of my Dad while my Mom was away. The first two days were great. The third day he pulled something in his back (we think) and he went downhill very quickly after that. It turns out that he has sepsis and he is in ICU now. I don't have time to breathe much less cook or log.

If I'm not at work I'm at the hospital. It's exhausting and I'm not cooking for myself so I'm eating fast food or junk food to get by. Yesterday the weather was atrocious so I didn't go to the hospital but it was too bad out to drive to the grocery store. I had some stuff out of my freezer for lunch and dinner. I don't really have much of an appetite per se but I am eating nonetheless, partially because I know I have to and partially because I'm a stress eater.

Maybe when things calm down I can get back on track. Please pray that this happens soon, my poor little Dad is so very ill. :( My heart is breaking for him and for me.

    So sorry - hope your dad is better soon! Take care of you too! Caregivers are usually the ones that don't get care - you are no good to your dad if you are worn out and run down. Sending you some warm and positive thoughts and some cyber hugs.
