Focusing On ME...

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Today I woke up re-newed thanks in large part to my Sparkbuddies!

We got up and went to our favorite breakfast spot where I got steelcut oatmeal with walnuts and banana. I was filled at half (it was a big bowl). My son ate his usual egg whites, english, muffin and one chicken sausage. He did use a little strawberry jam today, ate the peppers out of the potatoes!

Anyway, we then went to the hospital for his ultrasound of his heart - he has a long qt. It's either genetic (his 2nd cousin has it really bad), or from his anorexia.

His next appointment wasn't until 12 (neurotherapy, lunch then nutritionist) so I planned on staying at the apartment and running. He asked me to go with him at 11:15.

Last week I would have went and skipped the running, thinking maybe I would squeeze it in later -yeah, right! Well, this chick is done with excuses - I threw on my running gear and headed out the door. I got an awesome 3 mile run in, along with a shower, convo with my hubby and walk with the dog,

Another thing I changed up is the car ride. My son likes listening to rap which I call crap! While running and enjoying my positively awesome upbeat music it occurred to me I could listen to it in the car and waiting rooms with me earphones! What a difference it is making for me today!
Yayyy!,

Thanks guys!

    You are there for your son all the time, you can be there for yourself now also! Enjoy the runs, enjoy the music it doesn't take much to improve your mood and outlook. And remember you always have us if you need support, or even just a turn down the crap and turn up the good vibrations :)

    You did very well and it is funny how things like listening to your music while waiting come to us. My son said I was stressed. My feet hurt all day which made my hips hurt. I was wearing penny loafers and really have to have a shoe with a good arch-support. These are K-Mart $9.99 loafers.

Hubby almost fell over today. He was going to the bathroom from the bed and when he went to go around the corner of the bed, he went sideways. He was able to put the knee of bad leg up on the bed and stop his fall. This is so scary for me.

They gave me no instructions on how to bathe him, he is not allowed to shower and I couldn't get him in and out of the tub. I will look up sponge bathing tonight and make a list of what I need. No church tomorrow. I have to ice his foot every 20 minutes if he is not in bed, tomorrow is the last day for that. If I need to go anywhere, I give him a pill and put him in the bed and he sleeps while I am gone. My son took me grocery shopping today and we plan to have a cookout Memorial Day. Hubby won't be going outside due to being unstable on his crutches.
