Orthopaedic surgeon is quite the character and shared stories of his 10 and 12 year old sons and their antics during the appointment yesterday and again today on the phone. All of the nurses know that we have two boys and have asked after them.
So thankful for mom being here to drive me hither and yon this week, teach me how to properly work the crutches and wheelchair and for backing up Elliot with the boys.
Elliot and I met with a therapist today to help support us through the process and make good decisions as we walk together through this experience. Lots of tears but another avenue of support for us both.
