A note I read this week of a man on a documentary where he nearly died, and all he could think of was ... who would look after his wife. She is ill from poisoning from her job site, and is battling numerous issues because of it.
"I don't think my wife has any doubt the love I have for
her. She has often asked me why I continue and stay with her with
all that has happened. I know if it was me she probably would have
done the same, if not more. I know this has had a tremendous effect
on her emotions, health, appearance and general well being. But I
guess there is a blind side to that, often I don't see it at all. I
just remember who she was when I married her. For better or worse,
that's the way it should stand.
A note from this week and Utah Phillips.... on the love of his wife.
"I’m sustained (i.e., kept alive) by a medication called Milrinone,
which is contained in a pump that I carry around with me in a shoulder
bag. The pump, which runs 24 hours a day, moves the medication through
a long tube running into an implanted Groshong catheter that in turn
runs directly into my heart. I’ll be keeping this pump for the rest of
Though I’m eating well, my weight has gone from 175 to 155 pounds. I look like a geriatric Fred Astaire
The bag is always with me. Believe me, none of this would be possible without my wife Joanna. She has the deepest, most loving and caring heart one could ever imagine. She’s taken charge of all my medications and makes sure that I’m well fed and don’t fall into the slovenly ways of a derelict. She also has enormous physical beauty—I have never seen a more beautiful woman in my life. She is endowed with intelligence, deep insight, compassion, and a capacity for love that passes all understanding.
