My wife has now been in the hospital for nearly three weeks with a serious internal infection. She has had two surgeries and is now dealing with a secondary infection. Although the infection is starting to respond, progress has been slow. The biggest problem now is that she shas no appetite - not even for her favorite foods. She also has lost much of her strength and can no longer support her own weight. Doctors told us yesterday that once her infection is cleared, they will transfer her to a rehab hospital where she will stay at least 2 more weeks. While necessary, we are both tired of hospitals at this point and will be glad when she can come home.
Thanks, everyone, for the thoughts and prayers. While I am still getting some walking in every day, my nutrition has suffered. Like many of you, I don't deal with extreme stress very well. I haven't gained a lot of weight, but my weight loss has definitely come to a stop.
