I went back to the hospital at 12:30 am after 2 hours of sleep.

I sat by his bed and held his hand while the suppositories kicked in.

I sat by his bed during 4 1/2 hours of dialysis so that when he looked up, he saw my smile, and he wasn't disoriented.

I laid my head on the bedrail and held his hand while he dozed, back in his room.

I got into the shower with him and bathed him while he sat on a chair tethered to his iv pole.

I kissed his forehead and came home at 5 pm after holding his hand for more than 16 hours.

That, is love.
