My long-time readers may remember that almost two years ago my husband suffered a major stroke. It left him an invalid, half-blind, no longer able to read, and with expressive aphasia, meaning he has difficulty with verbal expression. I quit my job and have been his caregiver since that time. Last week he fell, fracturing his spine.
Doctors are treating the fracture conservatively with rest, a back brace, pain medication, and physical therapy (which hasn’t yet begun.) After spending two nights in hospital, my husband is back at home. We are not having an easy time of it, so I may not be blogging much for a while, and I may not be able to read and comment on others’ blog posts.
Here’s hoping things get better!
My husband was on the fourth floor of the hospital, and I took a few photos from hospital windows…
