When you are in a partnership, things usually have to be equal to work. But sometimes, the needs of one outweigh the other.
Before I left work on Wednesday, it was made clear to me that I can’t keep missing work for too much longer. I have to work to support us. I am not mad at my employer. I understand completely where they are coming from.
Couple that with the need to find Eric the best possible care, I have to put his needs above my own wishes.
That being said, on Monday, Eric will be moved to a facility in Ohio that can hopefully get him the care he needs. His family is only an hour away and I have been assured people will be with him every day because I won’t be able too anymore. I will go out as often as I can.
Eric agreed with this decision. I told him this was just a bump in our journey together. He told me he loved me.
But make no mistake. He might be going away from here, but it is not for good. He is my home and I am his. That is all that matters.
