Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Latest development: MIL has successfully going through an operation on her eye and recuperated at her youngest daughter's mansion somewhere in Penang. She seem to be happy over there especially she was being attended by a couple of high ranking doctors.
I got a feeling that she wanna overstay and be pampered by her specialist daughter and her beloved son-in-law, another specialist! Frankly, I'm not happy with the presence situation especially when I got to know my dearest wife was not feeling well. Even though she tried to hide her fever and coughing from me, but I was able to detect her discomforted well-being.
What can I say? I'm her Hubby and I know my soul partner very well indeed. She knows I would be worried and she really does not want to trouble me unnecessarily. No matter how hard she tried to hide it from me, eventually I came to know about her condition especially when I realized how hard she tried to avoid from talking with me.
She kept on sending me text messages which was very unusual. Like me, she wouldn't missed the chance to have a conversation via our hand-phone as regularly as possible. Deep inside me, I felt there's something amiss somewhere. Upon hearing her voice when she took my call, it confirmed my suspicion. I know she's not feeling well.
Now, I'm starting to worry. I kept on asking her when she's coming home, persuaded her to go to the hospital, gave herself medical check-up at a clinic and asking a thousand and one other questions. In other words, I felt unhappy and I felt so sad. I want my precious wife to be with me. I want to take good care of her like I used to do whenever she was sick and not well.
The truth is, I miss her so much, very very much indeed! In fact I had readied myself to go to be with her in Penang, but after a lengthy conversations she has managed to convince me that everything gonna be alright. She has decided to get back home tomorrow even though she has to leave my MIL with her favourite daughter and beloved son-in-law if needed. I'm sure my MIL will be well taken care of.
I know it has been only five days we were not together, but I felt it was the longest five insufferable days! It's okay during the day, but when the night took over life became intolerable indeed. When it was time to go to bed, I would take her place which is always on my left hand side. Then I would use her blanket to cover myself up.
Now I know the reason why a crying kid was given something that belong to her mother to hold? Same thing happened to me. When I took her place on our marital bed, using her pillows and blanket I got to smell my beloved wife body's odour, so sweet it soothed and making me felt so calm as if I was holding her close to me like we used to do...
