We all need to keep hope at the top of our priority list, especially when our loved ones have been involved in accidents that leave them unconscious. The part I felt was the most difficult, in such a situation, was walking out of the hospital and leaving Doc there. He hadn’t spoken a word, opened his eyes, or smiled or laughed. It was such an awkward feeling, not being able to hear him speak. I’m sure many of you may have experienced such a feeling. I realised that I wasn’t alone with these feelings, when I could see for my own eyes, that same look in other people’s eyes at the hospital. After a time, I realised, everything was the way it was meant to be. I had to be strong, for not only myself, but our baby and Doc himself. I had lost it, the moment that I found out about the accident, my pregnancy brain kicked into gear. Such anxiousness came over me after that phone call, I was very lucky my mum and dad were there. Not sure how I could have driven myself there, in the state I was in.
From the moment I had seen Doc, gone home, had a good cry, I realised something. He was still here and that was a great thing. Yes, there were many nights of missing him and wanting him home, but he was alive and that’s all that mattered. I dug deep and I found a great strength, a strength that truly got me through those real difficult days. I’m sure it’s in everyone, we just need to search a little deeper if we feel we aren’t coping with things that are challenging us.
