I beg to differ……
I posted last week about my hip replacement on April 8. Everything is going well and I am very thankful. My arthritis pain is gone. It has been replaced, but this shall pass.
We did have one scary moment last Sunday morning when I fainted. My husband aka. “SuperHeroHubby” caught me before I hit the floor. It was quite frightening for him to say the least. Poor guy. He thought he had lost me. Although we have been through a lot in our marriage, fainting had not been one of them…until now!
When I woke up I was rather nauseous, and pretty well unable to mumble more than a yes or no. It was pretty scary for me too. But I was more concerned about him. And he was of course concerned about me.
We made it through with the help of my best friend and an “on call” nurse and have had no more incidents, other than a little low blood pressure and dizziness.
He has taken care of me these last ten days as if I was the most important thing in the world. He has cooked for me, put on my compression socks (Prudy is her preferred name) a hundred times. He has helped me wash my hair, take a shower, dress my wound, and just plain ‘ole get dress.
I don’t think I could love him any more.
He is Jesus personified. Although he says he is keeping track and earning points, I know that he does this because he loves me. He wants to serve me, and he loves me unconditionally. He loves Jesus and it is all over him.
Oh, I know that he will irritate me again soon. And I will exasperate him as well.
So What’s Love got to do with it?
Everything. That is what love does.
