My eating is fine. Pretty much.
except the fact that I allowed myself to eat the two healthiest options from the machines at the hospital:
a dark chocolate bar
a "healthy" version of a chip

Ok, but I did eat breakfast - I made a banana applesauce oatmeal bar gluten free, egg free, sugar free so I have a small pan of that at home.
Dinner was a baked potato with cheese and bacon, and a side salad, and a frosty.
snack: rice cake with hazlenut spread.
and I walked 2.5 miles again.
and practiced deep breathing to relax.
sleeping in odd places. Mostly chairs.
Neck was better, mostly, on Thursday.
Now that it is early Friday, that's a little different.
Supposed to return to work today.
I am finding that concept difficult to deal with since I have to drive half an hour to get there. I will work it out.

No change with the hubby - still ventilated, sedated.

and I am in a deep fog. Can't you sense the emptiness.
That is my other half, we are one, and I feel his pain.
Even my left foot is aching for his.

  Dear Lunadragon, yes I feel your emptiness and deep fog. With your husband in such a critical state, I know you must feel like you're living in suspended animation and that everything is surreal. My heartfelt prayers and positive affirmations for you and your husband. emoticon

    Hi LunaDragon,

I wasn't sure what had happened regarding the reason you were at the hospital, so I read through your last two blogs to find out.

I really hope your husband is doing better.

I can't even begin to tell you how much I admire the fact that you seem to be handling the emotional hardship of having him away from you so well. I would like to think I would be the same, but I would probably have broken down and ate my way to temporary boughts of happiness.

I hope you are able to get some good rest. When I'm stressed out, I often sleep in weird places as well. Then I wake up feeling back and neck soreness. It's not fun.

I am sending positive thoughts for both you and your husband.

Take care,
