I wish life was throw some vodka our way so I could mix it with the lemons that keep coming and have vodka sour to make me happy and forget about things for a while. My wife just had her 3rd surgery on her hoof and today was the 1 week checkup. They hope she will be walking by sometime between Tgiving / Christmas. This last go around they fused several bones and lengthened her achilles tendon. The first surgery was back in March, second in April and last hopefully Sept 6th. The pain she has been in and being immobile has driven her about nuts. I think the worst for her is the pressure she is putting on herself about not working and the financial hit we are working around. How have any of you tried to make a spouse or yourself not get down while on a long term injury/illness?
