Feeling like I will never catch up

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I feel so far behind! My daughter was in the hospital for 7 days and during that time I was at the hospital 12 to 16 hours a day and at night was caring for her 2 month old daughter. Needless to say I got nothing done, except a lot of baby cuddling and a lot of worrying about my twenty year old!

Good news is she is doing much better and the crisis has passed due to some very expensive medicine (Panhematin) which is used to treat the disease we have in our family (porphyria). This was her worst attack yet and she even had to spend 24 hours in ICU. Needless to say my blood pressure is spiked and I am totally stressed out.l

I told my husband that for my 50th birthday (sunday) I want a trip to our cabin to relax. Between now and then I have to get caught up with my house, laundry, shopping, and exercise.

The good news is that I didn't gain any weight!!!

    When things happen like that it's okay to take a breather and not worry about exercising, etc. I'm glad to hear that your daughter is doing better. And Kudos to you on not gaining any weight. my son was in the hospital once for two weeks and I think I ate fast food non stop and gained like 15 pounds. Hope you get a trip to your cabin emoticon
