Back at the hospital

Hubby stayed with Kendall last night, so I had a good night's sleep at home (after spending some time in the hot tub with a Blue Moon ale!) Today my calves are SCREAMING from those 10 flights of stairs! Definitely works them differently than just walking.

I had to take Kendall's car to the shop so I called a friend of mine to see if she wanted to have lunch while I waited for it. She was meeting some other friends at Mimi's Cafe so I crashed the party and got to see several of my friends, which was really nice. Mimi's is horrendous on calorie counts, but I stuck with a chicken salad and part of one muffin. But I know it was way over my meal calorie limit. I thoroughly enjoyed the girlfriend time, so I'm not going to beat myself up! I got some other shopping done as well as a few loads of laundry before coming back up.

K still can't move his arm, and physical therapy is working with him. He can use his hand a bit better but he also has a fever now. He hasn't booted up his computer NOR the Xbox 360, so I know he's REALLY sick! :-(

And now for a new list. The Worst Snacks in the Supermarket

I brought some of my healthy snacks to the hospital with me and settled into the room since it looks like we'll be here at least a few more days. I meant to get some Larabars and completely forgot when I was at the store. They only have Odwalla ones in the cafeteria and there were an awful lot of ingredients in those. The cafeteria here is actually pretty nice. They have several different stations. A deli where you can build your own sandwich, a carving station (the roasted turkey yesterday was DELISH!), a grill, a wood-fired pizza station, and two large salad bars in the middle. The grill also has premade sandwiches and wraps. They have the best soft serve non-fat frozen yogurt, and the chocolate is a big favorite of mine, but since we've been here this time, they've had just vanilla and strawberry. I M NOT happy! Hopefully they'll have the chocolate tomorrow.

Praying for your family right now!
Psalms 91:14-15 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

An idle Xbox360 is a sure sign he isn't well. Take care. I hope Kendall is better soon.

Still keeping Kendall and you in my thoughts. Hope he recovers soon.

I'm glad you got to have lunch with the girls! Such a great way to relax, reconnect and have fun!

What a trooper! And still blogging :) My prayers are with you and your family, hoping for the best. Hope you enjoyed that Blue Moon, it's been ages since I've had one! I miss Colorado so much! Dunno if you knew, my DH and I met while I was living there, near GWS. The most wonderful place on earth. Anyway - Cheers! To good beer, sore calves, and a healthy recovery for K.

Good to hear that you are taking care of yourself. Time with friends is time well spent. A good nights sleep makes all the difference!

Sounds like he is making some progress with the arm, at least the hand is getting better. Had to smile at the "he must be really sick" line. My kid is a gamer too.

Prayers your way.........

Is there anything a day out with the girls can't cure? :) glad you enjoyed it too!

I too pray for you and your precious son. CF can be such a challenge. I know someone who has a son with the disease and it is a constant reminder of how lives can change in an instand...stay strong and know you're not alone.

Poor kid. I'm glad you got time to recharge - that's so important.
I hope he feels better very soon!
