I also have a wonderful husband who helps me get ready for the shower, washes my back and lower legs, helps dry me off, takes a cold hair dryer to my incisions, puts antibiotic cream where needed and then assists me with getting all trussed up again in my bindings. He is taking this whole thing like a trooper without a single grumble. I love him so much and am so lucky to have him in my life.
The kids are even being careful with me and good helpers. It's become a competition to help me out - fetching a soft drink, throwing my trash away, things like that. The rest of the time, I'm using the electronic babysitters known as 'Gameboy' and 'Computer'.
