Don't leave stuff on the stairs.

Dd left a blanket on the stairs and dh went down to get ds some Tylenol. Little guy was running a fever and it was like 1am. Dh slipped on the blanket and fell down half the stairs. He has been a sahd for years and is just returning to work. He got injured in the military 10 years ago and couldn't work for a long while. That fall down the stairs could've set him back completely.
Aaannndddd that's why I won't quit my job even if he makes enough to support us. Oh well. Being a sahm just wasn't in the cards for me.

Oh and yes we do teach them to pick up their stuff off the stairs but 3yr olds suck sometimes. She must've been up after he went to bed. They do play musical beds at night.
Ha! Totally forgot and cussed in the title. Still waking up over here.

He's ok. Really, really sore, and a bruise on his ass. It's kinda funny now that he's not totally broken. The fear is that he has rsd in his right leg. Nerve damage that causes extreme pain due to an injury. Well the rsd has been in remission for several years. He hit that knee on like 3 steps and we were very nervous the rsd could come right back. So far so good though.
Also this is why he started his own company and works for himself. If this happens he can call in when needed or just handle stuff at home. Poor guy has worked hard. I'd hate to see a setback for him.

I hope he's OK. This is also a rule in my house that gets ignored.

He's ok. Just sore. The older two have done a great job of following this rule. The little one though. Man.

Good to hear he's doing well. It's nice to gave a job that can allow some flexibility like that. Does RDS stand for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy? Dh has a great job like that which is good because he has a rare muscle condition that can cause him to damage his muscles a lot easier than someone who doesn't have it and he's over done it a few times over the course of five years.

That's exactly it. He has a stimulator implanted in his spinal column to control the pain. The stim causes its own issues with back pain. He's been thinking about having it removed but the fear is the rsd returning. Well because of that most employers consider him a liability and won't hire him. He can't sit for long periods of time so office job is out of the question. Then with the pain and inability to sit for a while plus pain meds he couldn't handle going back to school. At this point he just needs to work.

That really sucks. Sounds like a damned if you do and damned if you don't situation with the stimulator. What kind of company does you husband run?

He got his cdl's a couple years ago and drove a bit. Now he has a trucking company but it's hot shot trucking. He has a 1ton truck and a gooseneck trailer and pulls smaller loads. His truck has all the cool amenities to keep him comfortable and if he's hurting too bad he can just take the day off. If he feels good he can take any and every load available. I think it was a great call.
