Two months ago Hannah fractured her left tibia water skiing. For the last three weeks I’ve been giving her therapeutic massage to augment her healing. For 25 some minutes twice a day with my hands lubricated with baby oil, I push the skin from her toes to above her ankle getting the blood and bodily fluids to migrate north. She zones out and I get to help heal the woman of my dreams.
My gift? I don’t wait for Hannah to have to ask me when I’ll massage her leg. I check in first. Together we figure out what time works.
The massage is a twice daily gift. Never having to ask is priceless.
