Colin is home.
Many mixed feelings, from both of us, I think. There is no more safety net, and there is not more just being able to ask a quick question from the Nurses or the Doctor, or the physios, or the OT. There are no people just a foot away who can answer my questions, and reassure me that he is OK, etc. I know it drives Colin a bit crazy when I fuss, but I just want to make sure he is ok.
It was bitter-sweet leaving there today, and we didn’t manage to get all the team photos we wanted, but we are going back on Friday to see the doc and to attend the paralympics as spectators.
So far, so good – all we have done is sit at the computer. The real rubber will hit the road when it is time to get into bed, evening routine, and more. Watch this space.
Today I am grateful for the enormous support I have received from so many people, and of course, for Colin who has worked diligently at his recovery, despite the bumps in the road.
