Thank you

Thank you all for your prayers- my FIL is doing very well. Honestly the nurses, the physical therapist, and the doctor were shocked- they said his recovery was miraculous. By the end of the night he was wanting out of there lol. When we first got to him he was a bit incoherent- was asking random questions (multiple times) and we’d answer everything like what he said wasn’t odd at all. He definitely looked weak but that’s normal. I warned hubby he may not like what he saw but by the end of the day the improvement was so dramatic. You know someone is going to be alright when they want a cheeseburger and a beer for dinner! He was moved from the ICU last night and they told him (though I think the nurses said this to make him happy) that he might be able to leave as soon as Thursday if he kept on this path. We are going today after work to see him.

Eating was CRAP yesterday- I did my best though. Breakfast was an egg and ham and cheese sandwhich with coffee- lunch was a large chicken salad from Rubios- and dinner was broccoli cheddar soup with turkey. I did my best but yeah who knows how much sodium I consumed. But today will be better. When we got home last night from the hospital basically I ate dinner then conked out. I slept 10 hours straight- but I needed it- hospitals are EXHAUSTING IMO.

Breakfast today is a whole wheat bagel with two laughing cow wedges. Snack is a babybel cheese round. Lunch (cuz I didn’t even get to go shopping I was so busy) is a salad minus dressing and two drumsticks from El Pollo Loco, and I’m not sure what dinner is but I remember I have some pre-made cordon bleu’s sitting in the freezer- that with probably some spinach as a side will be dinner. I doubt I’ll have time for exercise today but I will 100% try to get in a half hour on the treadmill. It just depends how long we’ll be at the hospital.

Thanks again everyone- I swear yesterday I was like SERIOUSLY my life is just one drama after another! What’s next? *knocks on wood*
