Example text

The social worker and I quickly accepted a transfer to a local nursing home that did rehabilitation. I was momentarily happy that Marty would get some rehab. Perhaps he’d learn to feed himself or to walk better. I thought anything was preferable to sitting around in the listless state he’d been in. Anything was not preferable. As soon as we entered the nursing home/rehabilitation center, the stink of urine and feces was overwhelming. The overworked staff met us with resentment and hostility. That first day that he was admitted, I walked into the nurses’ station where all the charts were kept and picked up Marty’s chart without a second thought.

I had always struggled with migraine headaches since my early teens. I describe them as an elephant stepping on the left side of my head. The pressure and pain are almost unbearable. Every time I had one, Marty was beside himself trying to help me. First he’d get the aspirin or whatever medicines I was taking (and I tried everything throughout our years together). Then he’d rub my head, back, and feet—whatever part I thought would help. His massages felt wonderful, but nothing other than time and rest would ever help.

My patients followed me across town without too many questions. Many of them had met Marty and loved him too. He always greeted them when they entered our shared office. He would chat with those who wanted it or be quiet with those who didn’t want to talk. Most of his clients were in Europe or Asia. We rarely saw them. My patients were the ones who came every day. One time Marty went with a very sick patient to help him pick up his medications at a local pharmacy. Every time I saw these patients who knew Marty, they would ask me about him.
