Paul can be very sweet when he wants to be. Of course he always treats me like a princess, (Everybody go "awwwwwww!") but sometimes he can just be extra sweet. Like this past Wednesday.
On Wednesday he had the horrible task of traveling down to Baltimore to get an MRI. Have you ever gotten an MRI? They suck. I have only ever gotten one on my knee, and that doesn't even require my whole body to be in the machine. When Paul gets a brain scan, he has to be the whole way in the machine. Hellooooo claustrophobia! Not only that, but his tumor causes epilepsy, so all those wonderful sounds and flashing lights basically turn the MRI into a seizure machine! He has to concentrate very hard and try not to let the noises, lights, and anxiety cause a seizure.
One thing he tells me when I can't sleep at night is this: "Picture Christmas and Jelly in a big field, running around chasing butterflies." That doesn't help me fall asleep, but it does make me smile every time I think of it because it reminds me how much Paul cares about me!
This is what I sent him 20 minutes before his MRI was supposed to start:
One of the things Hopkins always has available in the room where you change for your MRI are those hospital socks with the rubber on the top and bottom of them. I know this sounds weird, but I really like those things! I got a cute yellow pair after my knee surgery that I would wear all the time. Soon they got kind of disgusting and I had to throw them out.
My yellow rubber socks helping me recover from knee surgery.
But never fear, I have about 3 pairs of light blue rubber hospital socks because Paul swipes a pair for me from time to time when he gets an MRI. And this past Wednesday, when he got home from a long day in Baltimore filled with blood work, brain scans, and doctors appointments, he slapped these babies into my hands!
Be still my heart!!!!
Even though MRIs are the suckiest thing ever (okay not as sucky as radiation!), he still thinks to grab a pair of socks for me. It's not even the socks that are sweet, it's that he thinks of me!
Tell me something sweet your partner does for you!
