Last year we (mr. DH and I) went away for Valentines weekend - we went to Martha's vineyard and stayed in a B&B and had a lovely time. We got home on Sunday night, must have been the 15th. On the 16th I got a 6:00 am phone call from my brother that Dad was in the hospital; I rushed down to Florida - DH a few hours behind me and we had a day and 1/2 with Dad before he passed on the 19th - at home, surrounded by his family.
This weekend I decided to come down to see mom and have a girly weekend, no boys allowed, no one to cook for or worry about. I booked my tickets and right before I left DH seemed better from the cold and bronchitis that he's had for 3 weeks - no temp finally - aha - off I went.
But yesterday DH was back at the Dr. with a fever again - here I am in Florida worrying about someone who is far away. Should I go home..or should I stay? That's not really a question, just a replay of what is going thru my head. If he still has a fever today, I will head home. If not..I'm going to try to stop worrying and let him be for a few days.
And, right before I left we found out that a close friend has terminal cancer - I think he's in his mid 40's or so. Nicest guy in the world..and I really mean that. He is the kind of guy who speaks the way he lives and it's all truth. I literally trust this guy with our lives...he is our airplane mechanic - and I truly, truly trust him. So it was sad and devastating to hear about his cancer which, as usual - came out of the blue.
And a bit worried about Grapes and her mom - love to them both.
And Renee - so worried about her and feeling for her and her family. Sucks!!!
Whew - this post started out as a "here I am, see ya when I get back" post; but I can see my anxiety showing thru. Sorry to dump but what the heck!!!
To look on the good side:
I'm with my mom on Valentines day, (her first without dad and he always got her something) and that ain't so bad. Hopefully DH won't have a temp today and I won't have to rush home. The day is cloudy here so it'll be good for a level bike ride later on today and MIL is doing well.
Hope you all have a good day and find loving hearts ready for kisses and hugs. Be well!! If you think prayer works...please pray for my friend Bob...and for Renee
PostScript: it's cold here in Florida but the early morning walking is great, power workout music helps. DH sounds better, MIL is doing well....and I'm going home tomorrow night!!!
