Visiting Peter just once a week for 45 minutes has not been easy. Rehab staff bring him to me in a wheelchair, and in what seems like minutes, take him back to his room. Of course, this is for Covid safety reasons, but it’s still hard.
However, in the past three weeks, both of our sons have come to visit. They could only see Peter once, but I got them each all to myself. Seth was working while here, but we had all of our meals together. Jeremy was here for less than 48 hours, but we had two four-mile walks, looked at a shoe-box full of family pictures, and laughed a lot. I agreed to join his new contest in which the winner will be the first to finish an unopened 3-lb bag of clementines during a Zoom meeting.
In this very hard year, every cloud has a silver lining.
