I had a different post scheduled but decided to take that one out and give you an update on the family…
After my post about Eli being in the hospital, I had several people message me today wondering how Eli was. He was in two days…
The main focus was…
to try to get him past the point of being so lathargic. He got LOTS of fluids and that helped perk him up.
He ended up having an ear infection on top of everything. So they treated him for that while he was there too. Poor guy.
Kelli left the hospital and was home with Eli by about noon today.
Kelli was so bummed because although he was feeling well enough to not be in the hospital, he was not too good at being home and being him normal self…so he’s getting lots more snuggles and still napping way more than normal.
At least he looks perky here.
One of their regular babysitters had Georgie and Emmett, Kelli and Jason’s other two kids.
They ended up coming home later in the afternoon…only for Kelli to find out that now Emmett only drank one bottle all day, ate food and threw that all up. Oh my word!! Fingers crossed and many prayers that now Emmett doesn’t end up troubles.
Georgie was all of herself…which can be a bit of challenge…so, Kelli was trying to wrangle them all. Kelli was so happy to have her little brood all together.
Gannon ended up coming to my house in the morning. As of today I am free to be around kids…espcecially kids as old as Gannon. He’s not one to sit on my lap or hang all over me. An infant, I’m still not going to hold for a few days…I’d prefer to be over careful.
Here Gannon is showing off his Jolly Ranchers.
He adores Jolly Ranchers. I don’t like giving them to him as they are a choking hazard but Kalissa gives them to him…so I cave in. We were told early on after all of Gannon’s GI medical problems we might have a problem with potty training. For awhile we were worried that doctors might be right but slowly, things are clicking.
The Jolly Ranchers were a treat for him because he was successful!!
He was only here for a few hours. I wanted to break myself in slowly to having kids here again…
It went good. I was pretty tired by the time he left but that gave me an excuse to sit on the couch and cross stitch.
I ended up making some soup for supper. Food is so hard for me currently. I keep trying to find words that explain how things taste to me. I think I would say it feels like this…
I badly burned my tongue
I’m drinking fowl tasting city water that has a stale flat diet 7up taste after I swallow.
No matter what I eat, I can’t taste it right. It’s so weird. I was telling the kids that I’d love it if they would give me a blind taste test to see if I could actually identify what I was eating.
I had been so impressed with myself because after doing the diet, I didn’t lose 7 pounds. Every other time I’ve done the diet, I’ve lost 7 pounds. Well…I’ve lost seven pounds since the diet. Everything tastes so terrible I don’t eat nearly as much. I can’t taste things so I don’t cook. I eat a sandwich or bowl of oatmeal as nothing taste right anyway so why put the time into cooking. No worries…I do eat…just not at the quantity or the higher calorie that I previously ate.
I did make a batch of soup though…It’s loaded baked potato soup. I’d love to tell you it’s wonderfully delicisous….but again, I can’t taste it.
Kalissa had some for lunch and liked it. You can find the recipe HERE. Try it and let me know if it’s good.
What’s on tap tonight for me?? I’m watching 20/20 Gone at Dawn on ABC. You might remember me telling you I was listening to a podcast about Jodi Huisentruit. She was a morning news achor that went missing in Mason City, IA, just an hour or so away from where I live, in the mid 90s. I remember watching the news that morning and feeling terrible that she was gone. Over the years I have followed that case, listening to specials and the podcast. I’ll be listening tonight. It will later be on Hulu. It’s so sad that they can’t figure out what happened to her.
I’ll be cross stitching with Rosie too.
