Just Because

Early today I escorted her to the awful place. There was the time wasted process of registration, then elevators and hallways from hell and I felt as if I'd stepped into a third world country. Straight backed chairs under awful starving artist art. I held her hand as we waited, and then she was taken from my sight.

I hate the unknown.

Rivers of people ebbed and flowed. I read, and I must confess, said a few prayers. Then again I tend to worry, I mean come on - she's awful important to me. As proof I sit here as she watches American Idol and I've been very good and for the most part held my comments in check. 

Just because...

  12. Your tender post made my heart ache. Oh how terribly well you describe that 'health care' facility.
    Prayers and hugs for you and sweet wife.

  13. Oh, Stephen ...how different we feel when the tables are turned. I remember a few months back (maybe several months?) that you were in the hospital with some rather serious issues and Sweet Wife was watching you like a hawk, hovering like a mother hen ...but you were not concerned, you just wanted out of the confines of that hospital room. Now, you are the one worried and hovering and praying for this to be a closed chapter so you can go back to life as it was before this scary time. Sending prayers for you both.
