Menu Plan Monday!

Saturday at the BIG track invitational, my son ran the 3200 and collapsed at the finish line.  It was so scary!!  They did not permit parents on the field, but that didn't stop me.  Nothing was stopping me from getting to my son.  It was a really scary time. They had an ambulance at the meet but no one there to staff it. (Is that stange to anyone else but me?) They had a medic tent which had a doctor and he said he needed an IV but, they had no way to give him one.(Ok there is an ambulance and a doctor what is wrong with this picture?)  Finally after about 1/2 hour the dr. said we needed to get him to the ER.  Kody perked up and was determined he was not going.  Luckily it all worked out and he was able to walk out on his own.  Now we just got to figure out what is going on with him. So question for everyone.  No matter how much he drinks he cannot stay hydrated.  No other issues, but when this happens during the race his body just shuts down. This was the worst episode yet.  Does anyone have any ideas?   We have got to get it figured out because I can't take it happening anymore... Thanks for listening to me.  It was an extremely emotional weekend.  Now it is time to pick myself up and get on with life...

  1. I'm so sorry Tiffanee, I know this is very frightening and I'm glad you got on the field to be with your son! So glad he's ok! You know I'm just a Goof-Ball but I do like football... and a few years ago the Eagles were planning for the beginning of the season against Dallas where it was extremely hot, their solution = pickle juice. Which just sounds like more salt to me, but I thought I'd mention it. Please consult with your doc, I'm just talking out loud:@)

  2. That is scary. I have been through rough patches with my kids and know the fears that accompany it. Hang in there. Has he had a good physical? If not, you might want to take him in and check for diabetes.

  3. I am SO sorry that is happening to your son and family. My only advice (besides proper nutrition - which I'm sure you're doing your best at), is to find another doctor if the one you have isn't helping. Someone out there can find out the answers. Good luck **hugs** Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

  4. I'm so sorry to hear about the scary weekend with your son -- we'll be praying for you and your family!!

  5. Okay Tiffanee, that is frightening. If that is happening a lot I would get him in for a complete physical, blood work and fasting glucose test immediately!

    One of the signs of type one diabetes is extreme thirst (a sure sign of dehydration diabetes), frequent urination, and excessive hunger (a misperception of thirst caused by dehydration diabetes), irritability and fatigue are all signs as well. Unfortunately with teenage boys all those symptoms exist just because of they are teenage boys!

    However, it would be worth getting him checked. If he has diabetes and doesn't know it, the result is not one you want to know. I have a cousin (very long story) who at 17 found out she had it when she went into a 2 week coma right after cheerleading practice.

    Sorry don't mean to scare you but I wouldn't ignore it, especially if he is trying to stay hydrated and it isn't helping. If nothing else, order a one-step glucose meter (they are free, call me & I'll tell you how to get one) and test his blood frequently to get a base line as to what it is doing.

    Love you and your family tons. Please keep me posted. You are in my thoughts & prayers. -- Christine

  6. That is some scary stuff. I am good when other people's kids need help, but when something happens to one of mine, I lose my mind. Sounds like they need to work on their emergency services at these events. Hope all is well with your son!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
