Teamwork to survive
Anyone that needs an attendant to help with everyday life knows that when they are out, life isn't very fun. Mine has been out for three weeks. She slipped in my bathroom and hurt her knee and ankle very bad. I feel terrible that happened to her. Even though it's not my fault, since it's at my house, I can't help but feel responsible in some way.
I am fortunate enough to have someone local who can come in as needed. She's a wonderful back up but unfortunately not meant to be a full time day person. But thank God she's available and can at least be here to do some of the essential stuff..
Jeff and I are very fortunate to get a long as well as we do. If not, these last three weeks would have been very rough. We have some stressful moments. He's been doing an awesome job on taking care of the house, Jason and me. Plus he's balancing his own jobs and his own stuff.
Teamwork is so important in a marriage but especially with children and a significant disability. Keeping things moving smoothly and efficiently helps reduce stress.
