Sick, Sick, Sick...

Well I am very very very happy to report that hubby FINALLY made it home safe and..... wellllll I guess I can't say sound... he is very sick! For the last few days at Ft Polk, LA he was sounding like he was getting a cold. Between the weather changes there and working 20 to 22 hours a day - I totally wasn't surprised.

He made it to the Atlanta airport on Monday night and by the time he got back to the unit and to the Jeep it was about 10:30 PM. He called and said he was so exhausted that there was no way he could make the six hour drive home. So we agreed that it would be best for him to just stay in a hotel and get up the next morning and drive home.

He told me he thought he would be on the road by 7 AM - no later than 8 AM. Well he finally called at 10 AM saying he was driving my way - but that he didn't feel well at all and that he had been coughing up a little blood! So I quickly decided that he would be taking a trip to the ER at Ft Stewart (our home base) before coming home! He actually agreed so I know he was NOT feeling well.

Almost 10 hours later, after locking his keys in his car and having to wait for roadside assistance, after about a four hour ER trip, and over six hours worth of driving - he finally made it home where I fed him homemade chicken noddle soup! (That fixes everything RIGHT?!?! LOL)

The ER said he has bronchitis and they gave him a Z-pack and told him to rest and get plenty of fluids. Last night was a rough, rough night.... for both of us!!!! But he is home - and safe. Not the way I planned to spend the last few days with my hubby! But I am trying to remember my new mantra (and motto) for life this year - "It is what it is!"

So the hard thing for me is going to be watching what I eat and sticking to my diet for the next week! I sneaked on the scale today (even though it isn't "weigh in day") and I am very very very excited to say I am under the NASTY NUMBER!!! Whooooo Hooooo.... but I guess you will have to come back tomorrow to see how far under I am!!!

Thank you all for the awesome comments on the free file yesterday!! It really does make me feel appreciated and lets me know if you like what I am currently designing! Also - thank you sooo much for the few of you that sent it projects to share!!! As a designer - there is no greater joy than seeing your designs on other people's layouts and projects!! SO THANK YOU!!!!! I will try to share some of those soon!

Meanwhile- I might be hit or miss for the next few days - just know I am taking care of a grumpy sick hubby! But I will stop in when I can!!!

Until Next Time!

It is so sad to hear your hubby is sick. There are a bunch of people really really sick around here and from what I read on the PT forum.

I hope he gets better soon so you can at least enjoy some time together.
