This morning Shannon surprised me. He woke up, organized his pills without me (of course being OCD I had to double check everything still), and dressed himself on his own! My cowboy is back with his Wranglers on! And better yet his BOOTS!!!! He put his OWN boots !
Many people may not realize what a MAJOR deal this is, but after a month of watching him try to muffle the pain he was feeling each morning I am overwhelmed with emotion. After helping him tie his shoes, pull his pants on, and generally have to hide his pride to let me help him through each day – I am speechless. I have been so worried about returning to work full-time next week – he is determined this weekend to show me that he will be okay!
I am so very proud of this guy! We had his first Starbucks visit to see his friends and are now visiting Dr. Vensil to work on the blood clot! A very exciting day!! Hopefully off to a running start for the new year!
