Making the Best Of It
Aaron hadn't been feeling 100% this week and after coughing up some blood and significant weight loss, he knew it was time to head up to Stanford. I wasn't ready (or should I say my heart wasn't, but it never is) to go into the hospital, but we knew it was time on Friday. On our drive up we stopped at Casa de Fruita for lunch and a little time to laugh and enjoy each other's company before checking in. His room was waiting when we arrived, so they did some initial assessments, and did his first set of treatments, then we snuck off to the Stanford Mall for a quick Italian dinner. I spent the night in the room with him for the first time. It was a sleepless night to say the least. My sweet husband endures so much. Hours on IV anti-biotics, nurses poking him, and breathing treatments. But we made the best of it with some quality time together and walks to the mall.
On Saturday our best friends Dr. Ben Lindquist, and his beautiful wife graced us with their presence for lunch. Ben is starting his residency at Stanford and we couldn't be more excited for our friends and our new second home! Thank you for helping us forget about being sick and making us laugh.
