Well, I finally made myself stay home today and not go to see the Man. As you may know, the Man is in a rehab center. He really has improved greatly, but the pain is still just crazy. I really was sick today, but in the back of my mind was the realization that he is tougher when I am not there. He doesn’t let others see his pain and works harder for them when I am not there. I guess it’s like a kid that is not suffering as much until they see their mother. Anyway, it was hard to do, and we had to talk twice on the telephone, but he also learned to use the phone. This was his parting remark (before the I love you part), “Maybe I should just come home to see about you.”
I am hoping that one more week along with some proper equipment at home and we can make it at home for a while longer. I am tired of sleeping alone.
