Life can change in a blink of an eye. Friday, the Mr. and I were talking about plans for the week, Sunday he is in the hospital with a life threatening infection. Go figure. It brought to mind almost 12 years ago after 10 months of being cancer free, it came back with a vengeance. No warning, I was living my life, moving on...It has been 1 year and 7 days since his transplant and here we are trying to live life and move on.
So here we are. I sleep deprived and delirious, he doped up, in pain and delirious...What are the odds that a couple would both have through what we have? It does make for a strong relationship. We both know what it feels like to not know what the future holds or if there is going to be a future to wonder about what it hold. We both know what it feels like to wish we can see our kids and grand kids grow up. We both know what it feels like to care for a spouse. We both know what it feels like to have a total feeling of helplessness to make things better. We both truly know the meaning of Carpe Diem...Seize the day.
