Forever and Two Days

I have been gone from this blog for a long time. My life has taken many painful twists and turns. I do not even recognize it any more.
In March, my husband Rich went into the hospital. He had gangrene on some toes and part of his legs. A couple of toes were amputated. As he healed from the surgery, he had a lot less pain. We were happy about this and planned for him to come home to recuperate.
But doctors found other problems. New diagnoses that seemed to come from nowhere. New infections. More procedures.
My husband became weaker and weaker. And sicker and sicker.
Rich passed away on March 25, 2023. He was surrounded by his six children and some of his grandchildren.
And me.
Rich was aware of our presence and our love. I kissed his tears away and told him I would love him forever and two days.
In case forever isn’t long enough.
