Well it has been a crazy, crazy few weeks.
A co-worker, friend and fellow member of my department is in the
hospital due to complications from Lupus. One of the tips of her
fingers is dead and she is in pain - so they are trying to figure out
nerve blocks and how to amputate or do some sort of debridement procedure without causing
infection. I visited her on Wednesday night and her spirits are still up even
though she has been there for 4 weeks.
A university friend/fraternity sister lost her husband suddenly. He
fell ill and due to medical complications and was declared brain dead. She
has a 1.5 year old little girl and is pregnant with baby #2 (due at the
beginning of June). The memorial is Saturday morning.
My dad fell on a really icy sidewalk and broke his ankle. He will need
surgery and is waiting to see the orthopedic specialist for a date. We were booked
to go to Victoria in two weeks - but I don't think it is happening now.
My brother and I moved my parent's bed downstairs to the main floor so he does not have to go up the stairs.
My allergies have been acting up since we have had a bunch of wind and
warmer weather. Then my body just succumbed to all the stress and now I have a head cold. I took some cold & sinus pills but I am still congested, sneezing and have a runny/drippy nose. Urggghhhhh.
So with all this going on I have not been sleeping well.
I have not been overeating - but I have no motivation to workout in the
evenings. I just want to get below 270 but it might not happen until
things calm down a bit.
Can I just crawl into bed and hide under the covers for a while?
