I am still pretty much surprised whenever I find that somebody was there. I felt like Lazarus.
I spent three months at St. Davids Hospital then three more in outpatient rehab.
Those were uncertain times. Chris was uncertain if I was ready to come back home. I'm sure she'd heard the reports from the inside. She did not know what she was getting into.
I myself wasn't certain I could maintain the front. I felt I had to keep up a facade to prove to everybody that I would be alright. Little did I know everybody could see right through it. I was at the height of my delusion.
Chris had problems of her own. She herniated a disk the previous summer playing disc golf in Colorado. She claims walking the corridors of Seton and St. David's Hospitals fixed the problem.
I eventually came home after three months of three square meals a day and some of the most hellish and embarrassing nights I could imagine. I was moving back into our one bedroom apt. on South Lamar by Brodie Oaks Shopping Center. Our wedding vows would be tested.
