It was water works at work today.......

The day started out per the norm.

We were supposed to get a resident back from the hospital, so we could take care of him in his final days, cause his wife did not like the care, or lack there of, that he was getting from the hospital.

I seen her and her son walk in the front door, and I told the nurse "Woohooo C****** is back" And she looked at me and said "You didn't hear?" My heart sank! I knew what she was gonna tell me. He had passed away before they could get him back to us.

I went down the hall in the direction away from the family, cause I knew if I looked in their face I would lose it!

I cont. to do my meds and my finger sticks, and I go to turn around and there is his wife and son. She threw her arms around me and hugged me and kissed my cheek. And she said to me "Our boyfriend is gone" Yep, the tears came! She knew how close I got to her husband and the good care I gave him. He will be soo missed around our facility.

****SECOND TIME THE TEARS STARTED TODAY****

We have a woman who is a resident in our facility, but her husband is not. They have been married for 28 years and have never, not one day since they got married have ever been apart. He comes in at 0600 in the morning and does not leave til 10pm, and he cares for her all day. It is cute to see them together, he feeds her, bathes her, takes her to the restroom, combs her hair. This man really cares for his woman.

Well the first few nights he stayed in her room all night. And some BITCHES (for lack of a better word) complained that he was sleeping in her room. So the big boss man tells him he can only stay 3 days a week the rest he would have to go home.

So tonite I am speaking with him in her room, and he tells me the other 4 days he can't stay in her room he has been sleeping in his car out in the parkinglot. OMFG! I can't believe what I am hearing.

I ask him why, he says it is 25 miles one way home, and with gas prices he can't afford gas and her medical bills. So he sleeps in the car, in the parkinglot, parked where he can see her window!

Is that not the saddest thing you have ever heard? And it has been 90 over night here, you know he is burning up! And does he eat? He never gets a plate at meal times with her.

I pictured in my head, him laying out in his car, and her in her room, and him staring at her window, wanting to be inside with his wife. And yes the tears came!

I called my boss lady and told her the story, she could not believe it! She told me to go out and get him and bring him in. I did go out and I told him, "You are sleeping inside with your wife! I don't care what the big boss man says, it is too hot for you outside, and you should be in here with your wife!"

He had a shocked look on his face, but a happy one, he hugged and thanked me. It is times like this the job is actually worth it.

I hope one day I can feel that kind of love!

_____I'm thinking...can you just imagine how alone he's going to feel if she dies before he does? Love is the greatest thing in the universe, but it can bring the greatest pain.
