Today my honey had to go for his first colonoscopy, no big deal until it was a big deal.
So because the colonoscopy procedure is done under either moderate sedation or deep sedation with the anesthetic Propofol, a person is not permitted to drive 🚗 him/herself to/from the procedure, YIKES 😬, enter the big deal.
This is when my hearts 💔 breaks. I should be the one driving my honey to/from not only this procedure, but anywhere he needs to go that he is unable to drive himself. Thankfully 🙏 today, VS, the husband of a friend from high school, was able to drive and pick up my honey today! And the other good news, no polyps, good for 10 years!
Last year we had a bit of an emergency with my honey. It was late one summer night and he was in excruciating pain and we didn’t know why. Thankfully, I was able to call my Mother who rushed right over and drove us to ER. It turned out to be kidney stones. It was this event, that made me realize that I would not be able to get out of bed to get phone if I ever needed to call 911 for either of us and prompted me to start sleeping with my cell phone 📱 next to me in bed.
If you’re asking yourself why didn’t I call my Mother again for the colonoscopy appointment the simple answer is #COVID19 and she herself is 80+, has very bad arthritis in her knees and we are now into cold winter days and she really cannot be going out
It’s situations like this that will always remind me of how my life has changed, beyond repair, that fateful day in June 2016 when surgery gone wrong left me #paralyzed and in a #wheelchair for life. Thankfully I am blessed with friends and family that are there if/when I need help.
I ask myself every day, does he know how much I truly love him? I can no longer wrap his gifts, I can no longer eagerly meet him at the door after work, I can no longer prepare dinner for us, I can no longer be with him at certain doctor appointments, etc., etc., etc. All the things I use to do for him, for us, I can no longer do. 😞
As always, I wish you days filled with WONDER – take a minute to WONDER what it is that made you smile 😊 today!
