Not a good year!

Well, it seams as if we have had a bad start to this year. As my b-day approaches I can now reflect as too the events that have left mu spouse and I in tears. Back in January she fell down a flight of stairs and fractures BOTH of her wrists and forearms. She was unable to care for herself and so I took charge of her healing process. For the next two weeks it was around the clock, up every hour going to the bathroom, cleaning and wiping her, with little time for sleep. We have (had) two teenage daughters living at home. The 16YO was helpful, the 14YO was and still is to my knowledge a "party animal" and was not too keen on helping out. One friday nihgt before the Superbowl she came down from the upstairs bedroom and announced she had to go to the police station and straighten things out or her friend was going to be arrested and she would end up in juvie. This was after I had told her earlier in the day that since she was failing in all her subjects that she was grounded. I of course assumed she was instead going out to a party and tried to prevent her from leaving. I grabbed her coat to slow her down so I would be able to have a little more of a conversation with her. She resisted saying anything other than get off me for the next ten minutes. After relenting I called the police to tell them she had run away. She did go to the police and filed assault charges against me because when I grabbed her coat, the zipper scratched her neck and she said I had started choking her. Needless to say, I heard a little of the bowl game in prison that weekend. I was more worried about my wife than what was happening to me.
