The past 48 hours have been non-stop between caring for a hurting husband, prepping for Thanksgiving, and cleaning-up after a pooping and puking puppy. I guess you could say I’m just dutifully fulfilling my roles of wife and mother.

He has a follow-up appointment scheduled the first week in December… Until then he has a soft cast and is spending 99% of his time laying on the couch with his foot above his head.
