He is doing fine though. Attending PT twice a week now and gaining lots of motion in his hand. He still has to use the braces during the day and while sleeping though until he has full motion and the OK to use his hand by the doctor.
It makes life a little bit more hectic around here than normal. Watching baby Mae is not as easy for me as it could be if he was able to hold her more, feed her and change those diapers! (Is this part of your plan Mr. Bill?) But, seriously, he is doing really well and does many things one-handed. Before we know it he will be back to normal (as normal as a Bionic Man can be, that is) and I will have him hauling gravel in the yard and weed-eating.
I got my daughter Kimberly here to help me wheel barrow loads of gravel yesterday. I hope I didn't make her body too stiff for the rest of the week. But it was nice having her help. I told her that I was sorry for her that I am OCD because I can't just do "part" of the job. Once I start I have to finish. There is no "waiting until tomorrow to finish the rest" in my vocabulary. I am a determined person with a goal in mind always. And my goal yesterday was to create two new walk-ways with the gravel. Mission accomplished.
And then we went to Oktoberfest in town and celebrated with food, drink, music and a bon-fire. It was a nice way to end a day of hard work. Thanks for the help Girlie! I really appreciated it. And you know me: it takes a lot for me to ask for help. But, I am learning to and appreciating the help that I receive. I am open to unlimited goodness!
