He still helps me as much as he can, but cannot do everything he used to be able to do. As a result, I’m busier. Though I wouldn’t change having him home, my writing time is restricted. Even with Home Health, which includes PT and a shower gal.
Oddly enough being busier has helped my own health because I’m now stronger physically. Partly from doing the PT exercises along with him, but also because I’m far more active. But I miss writing without interruptions. I’m back to the days when my writing was always being interrupted because I had five kids to raise. But I wrote then and I’m writing now, though much, much slower. I was a lot younger then. Now I’ll be eighty-six two days after Christmas and the years do take a toll.
Of course neither of us expected it to be this way. But love isn’t only about sex, love continues on regardless of age or illness. And that’s the point I wanted to make. I think because we, as authors, do write about sex as a part of love, we sometimes may tend to leave out the caring part of love, which is even more important. Because that’s what holds us together and keeps us going no matter what.
My Viking may now be in a wheelchair, but he’s still my Viking.
