Nick’s in absolute heaven on a day like today. With an excuse like football to lay around on the couch all day, yelling at the TV, who wouldn’t be happy? Hope he enjoys this rest time while he has it, because in three short weeks he will be cleared (hopefully) to be getting upright again. Then his new legs will be coming in a week later.
We’re not exactly counting down the days, but every fiber of life seems to revolve around this important event. In my mind, I’m either referring to B.F or A.F. Before Feet or After Feet. For example… In 2011 B.F., Nick Fener could spend an entire day laying on the couch watching American football on the tele. In 2011 A.F., Nick Fener could hardly remember what the inside of his own home looked like because he was always “on the run”. Yeah, that’s pretty much how it goes in my head.
We have had a fantastic weekend with our friends, resting and eating and laughing non-stop. This is the good stuff found at the core of every truly happy person. I’m not saying life should be easy; just happy. During the football marathon, my friend Kimberly helped me with a special project close to my heart. I’ve been wanting to frame the picture collages that were up in Nicks hospital rooms and hang them in our home. At the time, those pictures served to keep us moving forward, portraying the fun times we were working hard to return to. Now, they will be a subtle reminder of how far we’ve come. Almost done, they have turned out great! I’m so proud of both the finished product, and the memories they stir up. We have always had many pictures of friends and family on our walls, and now we have twice as many!
