We had a pretty typical marriage in the beginning. The first couple of years after I was diagnosed with Lupus not much changed. When I began to get sicker, my husband took on a lot more. He started to make dinner and take on more of the household chores. He learned to comb our daughter's hair and get her ready for school. He also had to take care of me as well.
For 2 weeks after he got our daughter ready for school each day he drove 2 hours from New Mexico to Texas to see me in the hospitial. He would then drive back to New Mexico to get our daughter from school in the afternoons. When he saw that my medical needs would be met better in Lubbock, he found a job here and drove back and forth daily until we could all move together.
Living with Lupus is not easy, but then neither is living with someone who has Lupus. I'm a very lucky woman and I don't ever want to take that for granted. He may not always understand what I'm going thru but he's always there for me. He doesn't treat me like an invalid and he will push me to if I need it.
I didn't grow up with a father and watching him with our daughter; I know what I missed out on. One day really isn't enough to celebrate the men who take the title of Father, Dad, or Daddy seriously. I'm proud to be married to one of those men.
Happy Father's Day Honey! We honestly wouldn't be the same without you!
I need to add that you've made it hard for any man who hopes to marry our daughter. This man will have a lot to live up too as you treat me like the Queen of the Universe and our baby girl is the most precious girl in the world. The example you've set for her on how a real man is supposed to be. I pray everyday that she is able to find someone that has what we have. We aren't perfect put we are perfect for each other.
