Well, we're on the mend -- both Amelia and Mommy. Her tongue has a white film (like a skin) over the ripped open area (so painful looking) which, I guess, is the body's way of healing itself.
And I, well, I am healing too. I'm cutting myself a little slack. I still haven't walked her to her chair for breakfast, and I'm not walking her by the hips for awhile (which is where I was holding her when she fell) but by under the arms -- which is a lot of support, but oh well! That's where I am right now.
I just finished an appt for a free in home estimate from Empire Carpet -- found a lovely frisse' carpet with lots of golden/copper/brown tones and am meeting with another guy from Popular Carpet in a half hour. We're going to lay down more of the matting we got from Wal-mart (really good interlocking stuff for about $24.00 per 6 pack) and put carpeting on top.
My folks are coming up to NYC tomorrow for the weekend, which will be really nice.
