Marty was very “weepy.” I could not understand what the problem might have been, other than perhaps Marty’s desire to go home. While this might have been part of it, I really suspect her tears are, in part, an expression of a common emotional state which stroke victims experience.

Marty was very “weepy.” I could not understand what the problem might have been, other than perhaps Marty’s desire to go home. While this might have been part of it, I really suspect her tears are, in part, an expression of a common emotional state which stroke victims experience.

The other part may be due to a sense of loss or some similar emotion. When my mother was in decline, she frequently cried when she was confronted with the reality of needing to rely on someone else for basic activities … like dressing and bathing.

To appreciate what I just stated, you need to understand that my mother never, ever cried. She was always in control, “wore the pants in the family”, and ruled the roost.

So to see my mom cry was a startling experience for me.

Having seen my mom cry over the fact that she no long could have control over basic life activities, gives me a point of reference …. It gives me a feeling that Marty is experiencing and expressing similar emotions.

Driving home that night, I was listening to the Delilah radio show, you know the one that plays all those sappy love songs http://www.delilah.com/pages/stations.html. Anyway, there was a full moon with a clear bright sky except for a few low clouds. Moonbeams were bouncing off the topsides of those clouds and occasionally shining through brightening up the dark side of the wispy clouds. It reminded me of the times Marty and I would drive home from Belleville, listening to the Delilah show, late Sunday evenings after spending the weekend co-presenting to other married couples who were attending a Marriage Encounter Weekend. http://www.wwme.org/

Please continue to keep Marty in your thoughts and prayers
