Friday afternoon is here and I’m still in the hospital. There is one change that I need to mention, and that is Hal called me earlier and said he isn’t feeling well (just tired) and won’t be visiting me today.
I’m heartbroken over the news for two reasons. First of all, I don’t want Hal to be sick. He has been wonderful throughout this ordeal, and I told him to get some rest. Secondly, I’m selfishly hurt because Hal’s visits are the bright spots in my days here. Knowing that he won’t be here today has me putting on my brave face for the world and pretending that I’m not hurting inside.
The doctors mentioned the possibility of being discharged tomorrow, that remains to be seen. If Hal needs me at home, I will go without hesitation. I’ll get Lyft to take me home.
