Today my heart is just so very full that I had to post.
Last Monday, my boyfriend hit his head very hard during a fall and landed in the ER. Thankfully no fluid on the brain, no cracks in the scull. But for the whole week he was having a very hard time with dizziness and then nausea. He saw a doc and was diagnosed and treated for a form of positional vertigo. He has to stay home for 3 more days and has restrictions on movement. Thankfully I have been able to be there for him to to help with whatever needs doing.
3+ years ago my Mother had a brain aneurysm burst and was in the ICU for a month, another month in the hospital and 5 months in rehab. I was so happy to be able to be there with her at the hospital every day for 2 months, then 2-3 times a week for 5 months at the rehab center 90 minutes away.
Quite a while ago my daughter was in high school.... right about when I started to go full time with bears. For the first time in her life, I was able to be there for her after school. I remember telling her that I was sorry I wasn't there after school for her when she was younger. She told me not to worry about it, that she REALLY liked coming home now and being able to talk with me about her day.
If it were not for all of my wonderful bear making students & teddy bear collectors... NONE of this would have been possible! I would have had to go to work. Thank you!!!!
