The long "tunnel" that connects the two hospital campuses is where I began my New Year's Eve journey.
Dream Boy formed blood clots in his left upper arm from the surgery he had last October.
Thankfully he paid attention to his body & called his cardiologist on Monday.
Since the doctor wasn't in he was sent to the ER where an ultrasound found the clots.
He was admitted - much to both of our dismay. But we also both knew that it was where he needed to be to help resolve this serious problem.
We requested a "room with a view" because we had plans to watch the midnite fireworks with our friends.
Well, his room had a view, but not the right one.
So a wonderful nurse found an empty room for all 6 of us to crowd into & watch from the window.
This shot was taken through the window & enhanced with my in camera editing tools.
Happy New Year!
New Year's Day found us checking out & heading home. An old medication with a new purpose has been prescribed to help thin out & dissolve the clots. In 3-6 months Dream Boy should be able to go off the medication completely.
So while reflecting on this whole ordeal I find how deep my love is for this man. I am not ready to live life alone.
I am amazed at the gift God has given us - to still love each other so deeply & have so much fun together & to still want to be with each other.
I try not to take that for granted. I try to remember daily that our life together is because we've built our foundation on our faith in God.
The good, the bad, the ugly, the 1st thing in the morning look, the burnt dinner rolls, the aging parents, the pain and joy we experience as our son's both learn to live their adult lives, all.of.it.
In this New Year I will continue, as always, to find the good in any bad, and to remember that every moment of every day is a gift & I to be thankful for those lessons learned through every one of them.
Happy New Year to all of you.
