I cried so hard tonight. The tears streamed down my face and soaked the collar of my sweatshirt. At one point I just could not stop it, gasping for air. I swear it’s been months since I’ve laughed so hard that my stomach hurt! Thank you stand up comedian on Netflix. We both needed that.
Today was a great day. I think Nick actually used the word “amazing” to describe it. It appears as if they’ve got his pain under control. He even did some killer physical therapy.
For me, watching him use every ounce of his energy to move and flex his legs was bitter sweet. Sweet because he is now over a major hump, and is finally ready to begin on the road to strength and wellness with controlled pain. Bitter because I got to see a glimpse of just how long this road is going to be. It’s all good though. Just do it. Get it started, get it done.
