Busy Day, No exercise!
Saturday, September 03, 2011
We promised the kids they would see hot air balloons this weekend. So we got up early today so they could watch the balloons go up this morning. My MIL and my Dad came in yesterday. My grandma had a strok this week and we thought she was doing better, but then we got a message this morning saying that anyone who wanted to see her needed to get to the hospital ASAP. So we left and drove 2 hours to the hospital. By the time we got there, she was in the ICU but was doing better. The neuroligist was a little upset when he heard that the doctor had told my mom to contact the family. I had been planning on a visit today to see her myself but with that message we all loaded up and headed to the hospital. Thankfully, by the time we got there she was doing much better. She is not in the clear yet but she has a chance. So after visiting with her and setting up a video chat, so she could visit with my brother in DC also, we headed back to our house with my MIL, brother, SIL and their two boys. We're taking all the kids to see the balloons again tomorrow and then back to the hospital again.
On a more positive note, we had a really good healthy dinner because we already had it planned out so when we got the house my MIL and SIL helped throw it all together. We had island chicken with diced sweet potatoes and biscuits! We already have tomorrows dinner planned out also and I'll have snacks prepared for a day out, so we can eat better during the day than we did today!
