I went to the gym and worked out for an hour this morning!! yah me, I went Tuesday as well.....I weighed myself on Tuesday, I um ...... almost died (yes not literally dad... I know bad confession! hehehe). I will NOT tell you what I weigh....... I have too much pride! :) but I did loose a pound when I stepped on the scale this morning. So thank goodness for small measures! I want to try to make it to the gym 3 times a week but baby steps is the way I do things and 2x is good too. I wonder if my body thinks it is hybernation time? ya that must be it!!! think that excuse will stick???!!!
so anyways I walked out of the gym this morning and my nose was just starting to run a bit and about 3 sec of being outside and it FROZE!!! yes it froze, the snot in my nose FROZE!!! I have never experienced this before in my life!! it is -29 here, no wind chill, it is a beautiful clear sunny day but coooooollllllld. Just thought I would share that with you!
Thanks again for all the emails and prayers, J and I really appreciate it. We both are still feeling a bit sureal about all this and sorting out our feelings. I don't want to let myself picture the worse case scenerio but wouldn't you know that is what is wanting to replay in my head over and over. We found out this morning that he starts treatments on Monday morning. He gets hooked up to a dialysis type of machine and it pumps his blood out then they remove the antibodies that are attacking his nerve system and then pump it back in. It takes 2 hours for 5 days straight. Then he goes back once a week and then when he is showing that he is responding to the treatment he goes once a month, indefinitely.
We also found out that he does have enough hours for disability insurance, so that is awesome, but we don't know how much it will be for. I have a friend asking around for a job for me still and if I can find one that is decent I will most likely be taking it. I can see that whatever is happening is progressing quickly in J, he is struggling more going up and down the stairs and his gait is real awkward. Not easy to see. Again I do know that there is power in prayer and we are totally believing for a miracle.
Ok off to brave some more cold weather, we are low on groceries so out we go......I really can't stay, but baby it's cold outside.......(that is my all time favorite Christmas song)
oh and just to clarify I guess my motherinlaw DID call Emily on her birthday....Emily never told us she called!! sorry mom!!!
UPDATE: we just found out what his insurance is....and it is NOT a lot, not even close enough to get by on.....so hopefully I can get a job quickly and we will figure this all out.
