We did slowly re-join society. It was much harder for me than I expected. It is funny what trauma does to a person and going into public and seeing lots of people and answering lots of questions was exhausting. I didn't feel normal; I wasn't normal. And the normal world felt unknown and harsh. It took time but I finally found myself feeling normal again by Thanksgiving.
Here was our first outing after the accident. We took The Prairie Kid to the Family Fun Day at the Pumpkin Patch at church.
Then we went with a group of friends to Billings to the Corn Maze and celebrated several birthdays.
Me and one of the greatest ladies in the world!

What a crew!
