It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80′s arrived at the hospital to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am. The nurse took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would be able to see him. I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound. While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor’s appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. I inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now. I was surprised, and asked him, ‘And you still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who you are?’ He smiled as he patted my hand and said, ‘She doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.’

In sickness and in health...he's committed to his vows.
This is so sweet
My parents and I have had so much involvement with looking after elderly relatives over the last couple of decades that when we were looking for a business to run together we ended up buying a Rest Home. We have a couple like this and they are adorable. The husband, who visits every day, is alsway taking pictures at our special events and emailing then to us, and he often bakes cakes for the staff. The wife is rather difficult due to her particular type of dementia but the staff all love her and I'm sure that's at least half down to the fact that they know she wasn't always like this because of her wonderful husband.
Thanks for the tears this morning--- damnit I miss you mom, I hate that you have Alzheimer's and I can't hold your hand every day because you are in California and I in Tennessee. I hold you in my heart each day. So glad we get to talk every day. I love you for who you were, who you are now and who you will be. Love always, Your Barbi.
What a wonderful thing!! God Bless this man.
So touching..made me cry..bless u all!
NOW THAT IS TRUE LOVE!!!!!
when marriage vows meant something!
Time is short but memories last a lifetime.
