I don’t know what I did to deserve such love.
The night before the Sentinial Lymph Node Mapping surgery I was justifiably anxious. I had trouble sleeping. I laid down in bed around 10. And was restless. Finally I got up and went to the living room to sit next to my very wide awake husband. He went and got the cot and laid down next to me on the couch. We were up watching t.v. until about 1:30.
He eventually went to the bedroom to sleep (I snore loudly) but when my alarm went off for work (yes, I worked for 3 hours before I went to the hospital) he came and woke me up. Remember, I couldn’t eat or drink water and worse no coffee!! He let me rest a little longer since I didn’t have to get up and eat and make lunches.
Then he drove me to work, came back and got me. Sat in the hospital the whole time with me. 11 AM until we left at 6:30 PM last night. Then made sure I was comfortable so he could go and get my prescription filled.
He checked on me periodically throughout the night. Then got up and went to work (after arranging for someone to come sit with me)
I am very lucky. They say that cancer makes a marriage stronger. It has definitely made my husband stronger in his concern to care for me. It has defiantly made my heart beat harder for him than it ever has before.
I don’t know how or why he picked me, but I am very thankful he did.
