We Continue: #sol15

We are not the same, but we are still good-great!  I have more to do around the house, shopping for his meds, our groceries.

I stepped up. He didn’t stop me.

After three trips to the hospital in the last month, I think he’s good.

He sleeps more, walks slower, forgets details, moves in to hear,  cooperates more.

He’s not the life of the party anymore.  At my brother’s 60, he sat while friends came to him and it was  impossible for him to take a seat while the rest of the crowd stood and moved.

But the passion for our life continues as he gets ready for a short trip to a wedding in Rhode Island. He is showered, shaved, and sitting across from me with the NY Times, his morning OJ and small plate of pills.  I will stop for a minute to prepare his first cup of coffee with pleasure.

Back on Wednesday afternoon, I’m hoping that he can return to work on Thursday morning as I take my leave for a return to HVWP summer for until lunch.

It’s a new world we’ve moved into and I will cherish each moment if I’m smart.

  1. What a beautiful post about your new normal. Your love for Tuvia shines through your words and images. The photograph of your two hands tells the story so well. Sending hugs and good vibes your way for a summer full of joy and cherished moments. xo

  2. Our lives are full of phases and changes–to embrace and live through fully rather than pull away from or complain about. Your post gives me confidence about the future…you model living it for all it’s worth! (Wishing good health and lots of love in this phase too.)

  3. Life changes and we learn to change with it. It is a journey that we have no idea where it will lead. Having someone to share that journey with us makes the trip easier and comforting. Wishing you the best as you take this new bend in your road.
