Hi Bees. A week and some days ago FH and I went out for a spin in our bikes to get some fresh air. We were not training. Or going fast. We didn’t even leave the gated community where we live. We were surrounded by kids riding their bikes on the same road we were and he had a weird accident in which he rode over a slight bump he wasn’t able to see and his bike jumped and his hands lost the grip over the handlebars. He crashed, broke his collarbone and got a small (thank God) fracture in his skull. 10 years cycling, racing and he had never crashed. And as luck would have it, he would crash while sightseeing at our own super small community.
We spent 4 days in the main trauma hospital here so he could treat and keep him in observation. After that, he was released but we are going from one medical appointment to another. We are thankful it wasn’t worse and that he is recovering well but it’s a tough time. He can barely move and I have to do everything. He can’t even reach the water botle or controls on his night stand. So I have to stand up and get every little thing he needs for him. Which I am happy to do. But at this point I am feeling exhausted and he is becoming frustrated as he navigates a medical system he is not familiar with and of course he is not feeling well. I am trying to comfort him in any way I can. But he is obviously not feeling well and although he appreciates everything I do, he is not in the best mood and becomes irritated and impatient at times. Which obviously doesn’t help my mood. I’m just keeping in mind that he is feeling pretty crap and that him being such an independent man who even cooks his own meals he must be going crazy having to depend on me for everything. Talk about a good test before marriage 🙂
Anyway, I thought if you ladies can share some links where I can see funny stuff, or post some gifs … I don’t know. Anything I can use to lighten up my mood when I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed … I’d totally appreciate it.
