I drove down to Tucson on Monday of last week and picked her up. Luckily, we have great neighbors, and I was able to leave David and Sam with them while I went to pick her up. Other than that, she is in periodic pain, and has a frustration level of about 1000%. She feels completely helpless, and can only hobble around on crutches. She can't get outside to play with the boys, go swimming, or even drive, since it was her right ankle that was broken.
We go to see the Orthopedic surgeon referral tomorrow, and I'd guess that we will find out at that time what the prognosis is. I'm already betting it will be 4-7 months in a cast, and physical therapy afterwards.
And to make things, well, not worse, but different anyway, we ended up calling in the cavalry (her mom) to come live with us for an 'indefinite' period of time. The last time that happened, there was significant conflict between my wife and her mom, so hopefully THAT will not happen again.
Anyway, that's how things are here.
