I was devastated.
I was selfishly devastated for myself. I mean I wanted my Mom here, with me, when Andrew went back to work, all. of. the. time. I was also devastated for my Mom. She wanted to be here too and now she could not only not be here but she also had to deal with being caged up in their house in a wheelchair for close to two months.
I was so emotional those first couple of weeks with the baby blues and then with this on top of it. All I can say is poor, poor Andrew.
I can now write about this because the first boot came off a couple of weeks ago and the hard cast came off after that and suddenly Nan was here... yesterday... and everything felt right in my world once again.
My Mom is still sporting crutches but can now drive and get up and down the stairs. We are so so happy to have her back.
