True Love

True Love Never Dies

It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly
gentleman in his 80's arrived to have
stitches removed from his thumb.
He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

I 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 several times and decided,
since I was not busy with another patient,
I would evaluate his wound.

On examination, 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 seemed to be in a hurry.

The gentleman told me no, he just needed to go to
the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.

Breakfast with My Wife

I inquired as to her health.

He told me she had been there for a while,
and 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 she no longer knew who he was,
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 who I am,

but I still know who she is."

I still know her (true love)

I had to hold back tears as he left,
I had goose bumps on my arms, and thought,

'That's the kind of love I want in my life.'
True Love !!
