My dad has amazed me the last two weeks.
The devotion he has shown to my mom has been remarkable, selfless even.
They have been married 40 years - so are to each other what butter is to bread you can say.
My dad has been at the hospital EVERY day - except when he is at work (his shifts are 4 hrs - either morning or afternoon) and sits in his car between visiting hours and only leaves after 8 pm - the last visiting slot. He takes books and packs a meal for himself.
I gave him a bit of a hard time about it today as I think he needs to take care of himself too as my mom is going to need him a lot when she comes home. And, selfishly, its hard enough for me having my mom in hospital I couldn't handle my dad too.
He told me "Tanya I have to be here incase your mother needs me".
I could not argue that point.
I only wish to one day find someone so devoted to me - someone that would put me before anything else..the same as I would do to them.
Get well soon mommy..we need you home!
