Another busy weekend. I am so grateful for Ben’s dad, Gene for being here. I don’t think I would have survived without his help.
Ben was still in the hospital Saturday. I had stayed until midnight on Friday with him and I went back to the hospital first thing Sat morning. He was looking better and walking around but still in a lot of pain. I had to pick up snacks for the boys’ baseball games, then went to Seppe’s game. Seppe was bummed Ben couldn’t be there. We had lunch then I dropped Seppe off at a birthday party and Gene took Gio to hospital to visit with Ben. We hung out until Gio’s game. I had to leave early to pick Seppe up from the party but I also had snack duty. Gene was able to stay and help hand out snacks and took Gio to visit Ben.
Ben wanted come home Sat night but they wanted to keep him another night. I went back to stay with him after I put the boys to bed. I did yoga and my plank before heading back to the hospital. Ben fell asleep soon after they have him more pain meds.
I got home late and fell asleep quickly but got woken up a couple hours later by Seppe. His stomach hurt and he wound up throwing up. He slept with me and it was not that comfortable. I got up to run but I was too tired so I decided to rest for the morning. Boys made me gifts for Mother’s Day. Seppe made a recipe book with recipes from all the continents and Gio a necklace. He later made me a journal to write in. They were both pretty good for me.
I went to the hospital after getting up to pick Ben up. We waited an hour for them to discharge him. He’s happy to be home. We set up the air mattress in the living room so he could lay down without having to turn his neck to see the tv. We had issues getting his prescription from the pharmacy. He got the hospital to sort it out. He’s doing well minus being cranky because he can’t eat anything besides broth and juice :-(
I went on a long run after my nap. Had a tummy ache at the half way point but I was able to finish. It was really windy out but it actually felt great. The run really helped make me feel better. I was feeling stressed out from the weekend. Plank to end my night. Ben is going to be home for a few weeks so I should be able to get my workouts in.
Meals weren’t that great this weekend. I skipped some meals and did not stay hydrated. I was just trying not to go crazy. Yoga and running helped me. I’m just glad that Ben is finally home and that I don’t have to go to the hospital anymore.
Spent Mother’s Day with my boys. Called my mom and had a nice talk. I’m grateful for all her sacrifices. I might not have agreed with her decisions but I know that if she hadn’t made them, I wouldn’t have the life I have.
