Brief entry update, mostly to explain why I'm not updating much right now. My husband is in a hospital in the UK with acute kidney inflammation (among other things). At this point it appears that nothing is life threatening, but he's too sick to fly home when he's supposed to (tomorrow). There's a lot going on, much of it having to do with the frustration that he's not here. Or I'm not there. I'm generally the medically savvy person in this family, so now I'm trying to translate medicalese for my husband via text message. And I have to stay upbeat for the kids, who are inclined to be panicky about Daddy being in a hospital where they can't even go see him. Really I'd like to do panicky myself, but that wouldn't exactly be helpful.
I'll take all the good thoughts and/or prayers anybody wants to send this way, though. I'll update on food and exercise when they seem vaguely important again.
