Hello, my friends. Thank you for the supportive messages, both here and via email…it really means a lot to me. Daddy is still in the hospital. Because of the Omnicron variant, he is not allowed to have visitors. This time apart and being unable to see to his care myself is breaking my heart and testing my strength.
There are moments in which I feel broken.
We got good news about his white blood cell count today, but unfortunately, he still won’t be home for a while. I have never been as lonely as I have been this last week. Even though my friends and family are surrounding me with love, my heart only wants Daddy. He is my best friend, my person…my life.
As a gal in my forties, it has been easy to take good health for granted. Daddy’s diagnoses came on suddenly, and within two weeks he was hospitalized. I will never take his health for granted again. I am sure he will tire of me worrying about him.
I know that Daddy can beat this. He is young and strong, and determined to come home to me. We have so many plans, but honestly… I would be content to just be in his arms again, to feel his breath on my ear, to lay my head against his shoulder. We will fight this and we will win! Together, we can beat anything.
This song is for you, Daddy! I know it will make you smile.
