The hospital let my mother-in-law go home today. Her sodium levels came up enough they weren't so worried any more. She still needs to get some testing to see if their is an underlying problem or if she's simply not eating enough salt. Her legs are still really swollen but now they're saying they think that might be a different problem entirely. (To answer a previous question, yes, we live nearby my in-laws.) When we went to visit her in the hospital we ran into the wife of my husband's friend. Apparently my husband's friend had his intestine's removed recently & he's in the hospital! We didn't have the time to find out much more. Life just seems to want to slap us around right now. My hubby already lost one of his best friends in a motorcycle accident this past summer. Just too much bad lately. I think we need a break! I wish I had a magic wand to fix everything.

On a good note, my husband got called back to work. He starts again Monday and will be full time so we'll have insurance again! I haven't been so excited about insurance in my life but it'll make me feel better finally having a general check-up again. It's been a few too many years. I'd like to have my cholesterol checked & whatnot. And I guess the paycheck will be nice too. :P

Quick question... Does anyone know how to track sugar on the nutrition tracker?

    Congrats on your husband getting back to work! It can be terribly draining to have a sick parent. My inlaws live near by with MS and various skin cancers. I guess all you can do is hang in there.

    emoticon (((hugs))) Sounds like you guys have some stress right now! I know how draining it can be to have an ill parent (my mom lives across the street and has early alzheimers). Hopefully your MIL will be feeling better soon, as will your hubby's friend!

    Congrats on hubby going back to work!

    Yay for getting back to work! I suggest talking to your doctor about the weight loss goals you have, and print out the trackers so (s)he can see them and see what you're doing right.

    If you go to your nutrition, you can add more nutrients, but you have to track the different sugars... glucose, fructose, sucrose... etc.
