Hungry. Tired. No run.
Jones’ surgery went mostly well yesterday. They got him in late + he was last on the schedule as the oldest, so we were there until 5pm. Guess who forgot to take lunch? Yeah, I went the whole day on two granola bars and a big bottle of nuun. By the time I got his prescriptions and finally got food in me, it was late, dark, and stormy.
Could I have run on my treadmill? Probably. But honestly I was exhausted.
Last night was rough. Jones fell asleep around 7 and slept pretty good until midnight (despite frequent wakeups for medicine). I, of course, couldn’t fall asleep and was just dozing off when it was time to give him his midnight dose. After that, neither he nor I slept much and he was up starving at 4am. I made an attempt to sleep from 5:30-6:30 but wasn’t entirely successful. I felt like I had a newborn again (thank goodness, this will end in a week or two, which is much easier than those newborn days).
I had to run. I was exhausted and underfueled. I did it anyways. 3 miles so slow I was practically moving backwards. But it was just what I needed.
I’m still tired. But at least now there’s a better than even chance that there won’t be a mommy meltdown today.

Clearly your mind was too pre-occupied with your son. You must have been starving! Glad he is doing good and you managed to get out for a run – hope you can catch up on rest soon too!
I'm happy to hear your son came through. Don't be so hard on yourself. You will have plenty of running days when he's recovered! ((hugs))
~Great job!~ Its so hard when the littles are sick (or recovering from surgery) and we are the caretaker yet also need some time for us. My daughter was 5 when she had hers done and it was rough for a little bit in the recovery period but it was so worth it. I hope the little one gets better soon!
Ok, I've missed some posts–what did he have done? I'm glad all went well. And glad mama got her run in today–makes such a difference!
You're so incredibly strong – thoughts are with you and your family! I am so happy the surgery went well.
sometimes the hardest part is getting out the door! glad you were able to get your run in. glad to hear your son is doing well after his surgery 🙂
Glad to hear Jones is doing well. I hope he heals fast so you can both get some good sleep.
Sounds tough. Glad he is doing well.
Hope Jones is feeling better, I don't know how you got through the day on granola bars and nuun! I would have been a cranky mama!
