My wife wrote a rather long post over on her blog, southerntinkerbelle.com. She detailed her hospital stay from her point of view. I thought the whole thing was rather surreal, although I did think it extremely cool the hospital had free wi-fi. Let me keep myself occupied with my laptop while she slept.
I know I sound like one of those typical husbands when I say this, but I never quite realized how much she dealt with on a daily basis until I tried to do it for her, and hold down my regular job, not to mention taking care of a wife recovering from surgery. Fortunately my work was very nice and let me telecommute last week which made life a bit easier for all of us.
I should probably try and draw some sort of metaphysical parallel between the whole event and software development, but frankly I’m just glad she’s on the mend and doing much better.
