My mother-in-law is moving in. Yes, she’s coming tomorrow. I realize she’ll be moved in by the time I publish this blog entry. I also realize having one’s mother-in-law move in at this stage in the game isn’t customary. It’s also not customary to have a stroke at 31. Not much here is customary.
My MIL is not the stereotypical mother-in-law. She never was and never will be. Don’t get me wrong...she is a take charge kind of gal…but she knows how to reign it in. She is here to help us, and we can definitely use her help. It’s something we have talked about for a long time. Years, really. Even before I actually had a stroke. Yes, pre-stroke Alison approved this plan. I was able to do a bit more then, too.
It has been a week and a day since she came. Things are better than fine, by the way. I will continue my recovery with her help.
