Normal?

I feel like I’ve spent the entire summer in hospitals and trying to take care of and entertain my mother and husband.

This morning, they shocked DH’s heart and it was restored to a normal rhythm.  Didn’t see any evidence of blood clots and he should be coming home tomorrow.  They took him off coumadin since they don’t think blood clots should be a problem and started him on medication to help regulate his heartbeat.  They said he needs to eat healthy, low sodium, low-fat, sugar-free (diabetes) and exercise.  I hope he listens but he’s stubborn as a mule.

I hope, hope, hope he gets to come home tomorrow and we can begin to settle back into a more normal routine.  I’ve had to be really strict about working out lately because running to and from hospitals has consumed a lot of my free time.

I weighed in this morning and found that I’ve lost another 1/2 pound.  Yeah!  Really happy about that but trying to bear in mind that this can’t continue.  I know I won’t keep showing a weight loss every single day but it’s been really encouraging to wake up each morning and see evidence that I’m losing weight.

I want to spend the day cleaning house so DH comes home to find everything shiny and sparkling.  Personally, I hate to come home and find things messed up.  It just feels good to walk into a pristine environment (pristine, HA!).  Enough, I’m getting to work.

12:22 Update - Workout was rough.  I did the treadmill at a 3% incline, 3mph for 45 minutes.  It was HOT upstairs.  I had a fan going but I was still drenched with sweat by the time I finished.  Doing laps in the pool is a whole lot cooler!
