I waited for my wife to come home.
We wept and held each other, both uttering "I Love You"...seemed like a thousand times.
We wept again.
We called loved-ones.
The next morning, we wailed deeply, holding one another so tight that we became one.
Then, she stood up and said, "I'm not taking this lying down." At that very moment she became my Nightingale, my battle buddy.
