Brandon separated his shoulder a couple weeks ago and hasn't been able to do ANYTHING with his left arm ever since. He started physical therapy this week and will be in it for at least a month. With Brandon's injury and me being pregnant we have run into some interesting situations where we are kind of helpless. The doctor told me to only pick Brent up when necessary and seeing as Brandon can't pick him up at all, I am the one having to do all the lifting. Also, with the weather getting warm it is time to till the garden, plant flowers, lay mulch, powerwash the house, tend to the lawn, etc. Brandon can pretty much do none of these things so needless to say life has been interesting. I am doing as much as I physically can and with the help of some friends and family we are slowly but surely checking off our list. Just the other day I bought some dog food for Pumpkin (the bag is 45 lbs) and had to get an associate to put it in my car and then when I got home had to get a neighbor to carry it in my house. If nothing else we are definitely learning to swallow our pride and ask for help!
This video cracks me up because this is not the first time Brandon has used Pumpkins leash to pull things since hurting his shoulder. We had some lumber (with nails) in our yard that we needed to move for safety reasons and there were some pieces too heavy for me to carry. One day I looked outside and saw that Brandon had tied one end of pumpkin's leash to the wood and the other end around his waist and was dragging it across the yard! It was pretty funny! Brandon is a great dad and despite his current disability is doing all he can to still interact and play with Brent!
