I am glad you were able to maintain healthy habits while your mom was in ICU. The way I see it, you need to care for yourself so you can be at your best when others need you. I wish your mom a speedy recovery!
I spent the last four days in the intensive care unit with my mom who was gravely ill. She's gotten much better now and will be sending her home. I was very impressed that I managed to keep up with my food plan and my exercise while I was in the hospital. Even though I was stressed and afraid and exhausted and emotional it was easy to pick healthy foods – very strange I wasn't even tempted to go for anything sweet or fatty. I got healthy spinach salads from the cafeteria and made tea from the free hot water dispenser, and I already had grapefruit and sweet potatoes in the car because I've just been shopping before my mom got sick and I could microwave sweet potatoes in the hospital cafeteria. So funny!
