I wrote the following on FB three years ago today. April 3 marked the anniversary of the day the mister almost died. This was posted two days after the BIG fall.
I am even more convinced of the power of a positive attitude. Not in a crazy way like I can wish Billy Bob well. It’s just that being calm made everything easier and so far we have good news all around. From landing prone instead of an angle, the injuries were less than they otherwise would have been. Ruling out the back and neck at the beginning. Ruled out the brain bleed yesterday morning. Down to only two doctors – ortho for the wrist and OMF for his face. You laugh to power through things and he gets his new nose on 4/15! Tax day. I told the doc to make Billy Bob look like Kevin Bacon or some other age appropriate crush ;). Today I feel a bit guilty for keeping an appointment to get my roots done but not guilty enough to cancel – vanity or sanity – just trying to keep things as normal as possible. Thanks to each and every one of you. You are proof of life’s blessings on earth. Enjoy your day !
As always, more to come.
