Early morning workouts for stress relief and then back to the hospital. Mom had a really rough day yesterday with complications following the surgery. They are doing another smaller surgical procedure today to open the graft connecting her liver that is blocked. She will then be back in the ICU for 3 more days. I hate that she is going through this!!

The procedure went well and they will place a stent in the graph tomorrow to ensure it stays open. Mom is in ICU and is getting great care. It is another long and stressful day. I am hoping this helps her recovery.

Another long day at the hospital. My mom's digestive system is still not "awake." She is getting weak from not having any nutrition since Sunday last week. I talked to the nursing staff about starting her on nutrition. She is weaker than she has been the past few days. It seems like the team is on board and they will start her on nutrition if her digestive system does't wake up tonight. The hospital and staff are great, but you really need someone with you and keeping an eye on things when you are in any hospital. Epidural and catheter are also still in. We did have her up walking a lap around the nurse station today three separate times. Only one lap each time. I can tell she is weaker than the other day.

Miami whitewater park. Only one loop. Was 14 degrees. I was so cold!! My hands, face, and body hurt. My lungs hated me! I had planned on 2 loops but did one and a little extra before deciding to call it done. I am not adjusted to the cold. Funny - I used to be ok running in this.

Early morning trainer ride in the basement - just like old times. LOL. COLD outside. In the teens this morning and a high of 32 degrees. Will be at the hospital for the rest of the day.

Why is my graph only showing the current week volume and not the current week plus the past few weeks? Did something change on BT?

Treadmill at the Y.

Early morning at the Y and then off to the hospital. My mom was taken off critical care status this morning and was moved out of the SICU this evening. She is now in a regular room. She is doing great! I am working from the hospital and from home. So thankful my company is allowing me to work remote. I would be a mess if I couldn't b here with family.

Hamilton YMCA early morning swim before heading down to the hospital for the day.

Everything here at home is so far away from the house! LOL! 20-30 minute drive to get to anything - including the gym/Y. Back to country living. :-)

Rain and chilly temps.
