Thank you friends

Thank you to our friends that have made my week easier by taking Kalyn for play dates, bringing us dinner and taking me out for friend time! Life is starting to feel more normal around here, and when Fred gets certified to drive and goes back to work next month, it will really feel normal! I do see why they don't want you to go back to work right away because there has been an absence of stress for Fred that comes from working full time on top of everything else in life. Fred seems great to me, and the only ways I notice that he is still recovering is either the amount of sleep and rest he requires or when I try and say something to him while he is talking on the phone. In retrospect, Fred has always loved to take afternoon naps and probably never really paid any attention to me when I talked to him while he is on the phone with someone else. You try and pick out things to blame on the brain injury, and you realize how many silly things you do in a day with no injury to blame them on. Did I tell you they told him to make a list of things he needs to do everyday? I can get through brushing my teeth and making a cup of coffee without a list, but beyond that I need a list to function everyday.

  1. Ha ha, Jenna. I make lists, too. Half the time I misplace them(especially shopping lists). Then I will find two or three in the bottom of my purse.
    Also, I go nuts if someone tries to talk to me while I am on the phone. Val can do two or three things at once, but not I.
    Anyway, you are sounding better.You can still expect ups and downs, but at least you are moving forward. I find myself to be weepier than normal, but I think that will subside, too.
    Love ya,
