So J is at the Rehab Hospital, and doing well. They are a really good facility, and will address all aspects of his recovery; physical, cognitive, and emotional. He is starting to enter into an anger phase, mad at the world, but I am seeing some of his Bipolar symptoms peeking through. I am a little concerned about that, but unless it makes him a danger to others or himself, we can't force him to take medication for it. The doctors are aware of his condition, and will adjust as needed. As his mother, I want to gather him in my arms, hold him close, and protect him from all the bad things. As an adult, I want to smack him in the head and yell at him to SUCK IT UP!
As for me... Well my food has been all over the place, as most of you probably guessed. I did buy food at the grocery store that I could fix in the toaster oven or microwave while I was staying over night at the hospital; Healthy frozen entrees (Kashi has some that are decent in price, taste, and sodium content), Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, bagels, salad mix, frozen waffles, and liquid egg substitute. I was really eating on the run, though, so I didn't take time to track.
I haven't been so good since he was transferred, so I expect the scale to go the wrong way at the end of the month. I haven't exercised at all for a week and a half. Between trying to work off the stress and the VERY uncomfortable sleeping arrangements, I strained/sprained something in my knee. I could walk, but I had Rice Crispies in my joints. (Snap, Crackle, Pop, and occasionally Crunch) So much for getting a 1500 min trophy this month. Anyway, I have a couple of beginner yoga DVDs I have been wanting to try, so now may be a good time.
Once again, I would like to extend my most heartfelt gratitude to everyone who sent prayers and well wishes our way. It really meant a lot to me, and just goes to show SP is more than a Diet site, it is a HUMAN site. Blessing to all.
