Picnic and Hallway Hugs

Posted by benbeatscancer@gmail.com on July 2, 2020 at 11:15 PM

I shop as fast as I can. I have no idea what I have at home. The last six days have been me alone and I am not certain of anything. $84.12 and forty minutes goes fast! I'm home in a jiffy and I whip up ham sandwiches.


Meow. It's my Mia!!! She pads in, purrs up against me and I sneak in a cuddle. I put her down and say, "Sorry, little bug, I have to go again. Meow, meow." She stays at my feet and she circles between my legs. Rub, rub, tail touch. OH, my heart. I just want to curl up with the loving ball of fur.. but she will have to wait.


I peel oranges, cut vegetables, pour ranch into a container and make a salad. I know he likes fresh food and I have no idea what he will feel like. I bring cookies and rice crisps and just in case, I grab some sour candy too. Clothes ipad, and I'm ready for the loathed 22 minutes...


I get to the hospital to find Ben up and about. It's nice to see. It's nice to be greeted at the entry of his ward. He hugs me and tells me not to let his mom's emotions be my burden too. So, he knows. 


I cry and he holds me in the hallway. This feels amazing. He would usually want a hug in private but not today. He just hugs me in the middle of the hall and my heart bursts.  


We go to his room and I lay out the picnic. He can't believe I have done this much in so short of timeframe. I am pleased with myself. 

Oh, there's two sandwiches. Are we having supper together? I nod yes and he smiles. 

We unload everything on the bed-table and have a hospital picnic together.
