The end of April marked Nicole's 6th birthday (April 27th to be specific). This was her first birthday party with her school friends. What a gong show it was. 16 screaming little girls...yikes. The nice part about it was that kids at this age are not so clicky and everyone gets along. Don't imagine that is going to last long...so we enjoy it while we can. I think Nicole must have mentioned to all of her friends that she wanted "Barbie" stuff for her birthday...because she was inundated with every Barbie trinket known to man. Again...yikes. We survived that day and it was relatively painless. Most importantly I think Nicole had a great time.
Susan is going to physio two times a week now to help get her back to speed. Our big concern is that their may be some permanent injury and to what extent. The way the foot has been repaired surgically with screws etc. She will not have the flexibility or movement she had before, we are just wondering what the extent will be. Susan is back at work now, but it is a challenge as she still needs to use the crutches a bit and has to wear her boot to protect the foot. The one nice thing is that we are now driving to work together, which I have enjoyed. Not sure why we didn't do this before.
