Must eat meat

We're still truckin' over here at the hospital. Finn has a go home date of this Sunday. But he's now spiking a fever again, so we're hoping he'll be well enough by then. Always little setbacks, it seems. We're still limiting visitors to family for now, just because his immunse system is down and they are trying to determine if he has a little virus at the moment.

On another note, I found out I am anemic. "Have you been tired lately?" they ask. I think I laughed out loud. Sleep is a foreign friend these days. "Um, yeah, pretty tired." The solution? "Try to eat more red meat." So I laughed inwardly today as I sat here eating a big fat burger, while reading NieNie's blog and how one mother has been inspired to eat less meat. Doctor's orders! More In-and-Out it is (well, and a trusty iron supplement)...

Glad to hear from you. Hopefully Finn will get to come home as planned. Wishing you all the best!

Hope all this ends for you all soon and you have a happy healthy Finn again. You might also want to increase your fiber intake with the iron supplement. They tend to bind you up (just what a pregnant woman needs right? another thing making you uncomfortable!) I had to take them after I had Mono because I became anemic too, and the doc forgot to mention that little fact.
