Shelby sat down beside her husband. She looked at him and her dad. “I went to visit Campbell this afternoon. He’s wanting us to let Abbey go.”

Philip shook his head. “The doctor is the one that told us to hire an aide. Unless there is a good reason to let her go, she stays until the doctor says he is okay on his own.”

“That’s what I told him. Well, almost. I told him that she stays until he sees the doctor and if the doctor says it is okay, we’ll cut her back to just a few hours a day to help with the things he still needs help with.”

Andy looked at his daughter. He knew that Campbell was unhappy about Abbey being there. “He agreed to that?”

She nodded. “We all heard what the doctor said before he came home. There’s a chance that his injury is permanent.”

Philip sat back listening. “I don’t want to believe yet that it is. The doctor did say it was just a chance. That means there is also a chance that he could walk again.”

“There is, yes. But the doctor said it’s a very small chance. I don’t want to sound like there is no hope, but we really do need to face the truth. He could very well be in that wheelchair the rest of his life. He’s going to need someone there to help him.”

Philip looked at his wife thinking. “You better not be doing what I think you are doing, Shelby.”

She gave him an innocent look and a little smile. “I have no idea what you are talking about. All I am doing is making sure our son is being taken care of.”

Philip shook his head. “Don’t, Shelby. Not Campbell.”

She kissed his cheek. “Everything is going to be okay, love. You’ll see.”
