Hi All...On October 1st in an accident in which I broke my right leg, tib-fib compound fracture, surgery with rod and screws then at follow up was readmitted for muscle flap surgery (I know sounds disgusting) had calf moved around to cover hole where bone split skin and small skin graft...Anyhow my question is..How do I maintain parenting while living with my parents and they're ways of parenting, I can't go upstairs to put my daughter to bed, bath her, dress her, or cook..Thankfully I have a break from cleaning! Trying to figure out what or how to still parent though there is not much I can do...Also I feel like my daughter, she is 8 is mad at me because her life has been turned upside down..Really hard to relinquish control and allow my parents to parent, not be able to choose clothing or walk to bus stop, even cook dinner...Not sure what to do?? Any ideas or suggestions I'd great appreciate! Sure I'm not the first Mom or last Mom with a broken leg...
