Lifes twists and turns...

Friday, May 13, 2011

Today my hubby came home from the hospital. He went in Wednesday for reconstructive surgery for a tibial plateau fracture. It's been a rough week. Thankfully he is fixed and we are on our way to mending. It's been a very scary process. He cannot bear any weight for at least 12 weeks, has 2 plates and at least a dozen pins and screws, two incisions at least 5 inches and bunches of staples. He means more to me than anything and I just everything turns our successfully. We still have our gym membership and I'd like to go but I feel bad leaving him at not able to walk to go exercise when he cannot, especially when he loves working out. What do I do?

    Get his input remember you have to take care of yourself first to be able to take care of him.

    Talk to him about your desire and your feelings. I'm sure you can perhaps come to a compromise, one day doing some Spark exercises at home, and then next day at the gym. I'm sure, together, you can work something out.

    It's great that he is on the mend now, although be prepared for the frustration involved in the healing process. By talking things through together this could help with the challenges you both face. All the very best.
