So I alluded to it in my last post...we've been dealing with some stuff. That stuff namely being that Bob has been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Things started getting really bad about three weeks ago. So, as you can imagine, blogging hasn't been high on my priority list.
Bob has been in the hospital since Tuesday afternoon. There was talk of him going home today but after last night, it doesn't look like that's going to happen. We are hoping to go home soon but we don't want to get home and have to come right back.
This has been a pretty difficult week. Seeing my husband so miserable and just not himself is tough. Not having our family all together has been one of the worst parts. (I'm staying in the hospital with Bob and my mom is in town taking care of Sam - which has been such a huge help).
We try to get Sam in here at least once a day to visit but you can imagine how well that goes...just imagine one very active 15-month old, one fairly small hospital room, an IV pole with lots of cords hanging down, one bed with buttons to push and handles to pull and the need to be sort of quiet...since we're in the hospital. Anyway, it's not exactly a conducive environment for Sam. So, the visits are short and sometimes kind of wild. Bob and I both really miss him and it's hard when he leaves or when I leave him (I've been going home each day to try and take a nap, shower and hang out with Sam for a little while).
We are very thankful for all the people who are praying for us. We're also seeing some improvement in Bob from the meds he is on. And like I said earlier, my mom being able to stay and take care of Sam has taken a huge load off my shoulders.
Honestly, we're really just ready to be on the other side of this having a hard time remembering how bad it was.
