My wife was stepping from the boat to the dock
. She fell and broke her left wrist. She also has numerous scrapes and bruises,
We have been to E R's and we have seen Doctors. We will know next week if surgery is going to be required.
She was taking a ASA
sailing class to learn how to be a good crew on a sailboat. She is doing this because she wants me to be able to enjoy what is my dream and my hobby. So she is trying to learn and she is pushing herself way past her comfort limits because she loves me.
That she hurt herself hurts me. I wish that I could help her out. You know – get her a hook and duct tape it to her cast for pulling herself on board or something like that.
I already told her that she did not have to to the laundry
. She helped me sort it and I loaded it in the car and took it to my sister-in-law. The sister-in-law is out of the hospital and not working right now. I also took her the soap and bleach and all that other stuff women use for laundry
I also told my darling wife that she did not have to do the meal planning, cooking
or clean up. I helped her get an appreciation of camp cooking
. She is just going to have to learn to like peppers in dishes more. I also bought her some ice cream. She loves ice cream. I even dip it up for her and carry her bowl to the sink when she is done.
She is not supposed to get her cast wet. I wrap a towel covered by a plastic bag around her left arm and tie it to an overhead fan. Then I wash her down like she was a tiny little car and dry her off while she stands in the dog's bath bucket. It works real well and it is fun too!
Have others of you dealt with wives with a broken bone? Have you got any advice for me?
