    This is what True Love is all about :


    It was a busy morning, approximately 8:30 a.m ., when an elderly gentleman in his 80's, arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He stated that he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.

    I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. I saw him look at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.


    On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.


    While taking care of his wound, we began to engage in conversation. I asked him if he had another doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.


    I then inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer' s Disease .


    As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.


    I was surprised, and asked him, " And you still go every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are? "


    He smiled as he patted my hand and said, " She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is ." I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought, "That is the kind of love I want in my life."


    True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.
