Found out today he has a skull fracture at the base of his skull. This is why he keeps bleeding out his nose and ears. He will be in the ICU today and then he will move to the Neuro ICU for a day or 2. He will be in the hospital until at least the end of the week. See Sunday's blog for the full details. I feel so bad for my mom. I just wish I could be there.
WAHH!!!!! Kicking and screaming and stomping hands on the floor. I HATE THIS!!! I wish I could be there. I know I couldn't do anything more than I am now, but damn it! *I* want to be there to comfort her. *I* wish I could cook her a meal or SOMETHING. I just feel so useless. I could be there, but I wouldn't be doing anything more than I am here. At least here I can keep my eating in check. If I was there, I would be the victim of hospital meals--which are frickin expensive!!!
Did I mention my brother has no health insurance?!?! He is 22 and has a job, but doesn't take the health insurance they offer. I'll say it again...IDIOT! I won't think about that now, but he's going to be over his head in hospital bills.
Oh yeah..and my sister--the one that is getting married September 8th--lost her job on Friday. Ugh...I feel so bad for her. Who is going to hire her knowing that in 6 weeks she will need a week and a half off??? So she is going to draw unemployment for a bit and see what she can find. She didn't like her job anyway, but she was going to keep it! Oh well.
On a positive note, I have been strictly OP today. Dh and I are going out to eat tonight and I will make good choices and stay OP. I will probably have to take my purse with me so I can smuggle in my stuff--spray butter, brown sugar splenda, etc... :)
Oh I do have one NSV...I can now see some ab muscles on the sides of my stomach. They still have a layer of fat/flab over them (a fairly big layer) but I can see the definition of the sides of my muscles. Maybe when I finally get to my ultimate goal (in the 130s) after we have children, I will have muscles and then all I will need is a tummy tuck to be able to actually SEE those muscles!
Okay, I am back to work. I will post the recipe that we had for dinner last night later. And my yummy snack I had after lunch. :) Toodles...
