|The slippery downhill slope|
Doug is on the mend! He's wielding his crutches well and learning to get around better each day. This morning he had a mishap in the shower with the plastic bag and the cast got quite wet so we took a little trip back to the hospital so they could take a look. It was good that we did because they said it would've likely rotted from the inside out and made things quite unpleasant for the rest of us. So they took the cast off and replaced it with a brand new one! We got to see the offending wound and all in all it looks good. If you are interested in taking a peek, just look at the next picture!
Seriously, we are very grateful for the love and concern that has been poured out upon us. Doug will heal. It's a slow process and of course, we've had snow every day since the accident and the streets are like sheets of ice and it's Advent season, etc. But somehow in the midst of it all, I feel strangely calmed and at peace. I am grateful for the community of care that surrounds us, locally and globally.
