This has been a somewhat stressful trip for me. The work part of it has gone well, but Kara has had a hard time, and it was tough being away while she started back up on TPN.
Also, I have had a coworker along on this trip. This is good in that I have had someone to talk to and do things with. However, mostly what we have done is go to nice restaurants and eat good food.
Good food and stress go together really well. Except I now have guilt because I've been eating so well while my wife is getting food through a tube in her chest.
In addition, I'm going to lock the bathroom scale in a closet until around St. Valentine's Day.
