I'm fighting a cold, and the situation obviously isn't great for getting my runs in this week anyway, so week 2 is kind of a wash. Besides, tomorrow's forecast calls for -17 degrees. Ouch. If I do anything, it will be sneaking in some miles on the treadmill at some point.
My mom decided to check out of the hospital this afternoon after all. She didn't get much sleep last night with all the beeps and nurses poking her, so when the Dr. said it was up to her, she said: take me home! She is feeling good, but very sore. We walked the halls even further this morning and her pace is picking up. She declined my offer to check her pace on my Garmin, but at least I did think to offer.
I'm going back to the hospital to get her in a bit. We've been brainstorming some clever ways we can wash her hair at home without getting the rest of her wet. Should be interesting! I miss my babies so we are all sleeping over there together tonight.
Tomorrow my sister flies in from Utah, and though I wish the circumstances were different, I can't wait to see her and we feel so lucky to get in an extra visit. I haven't seen her in the WINTER in many years, which means I don't even know her winter wardrobe! I can't wait to check out all her cute sweaters and boots and steal them. I guess that's not exactly the point of her visit, huh.
Hoping the transfer goes smoothly and will update again tomorrow. xoxo
