His brother is having some health issues that landed him in the hospital a couple of weeks ago. One of his dearest longtime friends is also having health issues, and he had to be flight-lifted to Dallas where he is awaiting a heart transplant. This friend's daughter has been keeping us updated on her dad's condition, and she had asked the other day if Hubby would come by, thinking a visit from his buddy would lift her dad's spirits. Seeing someone you care about and have known for decades in ICU, hooked up to machines, swollen from kidney failure and crazy from meds, is not what anyone would describe as fun. When I asked if he was going to go, he gave me two words: Of course.
Did you just hear my heart flutter? When someone he loves needs something, he does it - no questions asked. All of this is weighing him down, day by day.
He doesn't say it, but knowing him, I see it.
I'd like to ask God to give Hubby a break. I can do all that I can to make his life easier, happier, better..... but there are some things out of my control, and it would be tremendous if some of Hubby's burdens could be lifted.
