There hasn't been a lot of running this week. It's hard to run when the built in child care is laid up in the hospital. But, with the lack of running, I have been awake at night to think. No matter what is happening in life, there is so much to be thankful for.
Russ had a serious internal bleed. It was a big deal. He left the hospital today with no restrictions.
Thank you to the blood donors who selflessly gave the two units of blood that were pumped into Russ. I am pretty sure that saved him.
Thank you to the ER staff who realized that there was something wrong, even if they couldn't quite pinpoint what it was. They knew something wasn't quite right and decided to keep him overnight to check.
Thank you to the ICU staff (in both units) for their attention and care. There are really, really sick people in ICU and the staff treated Russ with just as much care and concern as they did for those people. They realized that the boys needed to see their daddy just as much as daddy needed to see the boys and they helped make that happen. They explained everything and answered all of our questions. We were blessed with fantastic care every day he was in the hospital.
Thanks to my mom and dad for keeping the boys' week as normal as possible. That consistency kept our household sane.
It's been a long week, but now Russ is home and healing and we are able to get back to normal. Running shenanigans start back this weekend!
