“I have seen patients dying in hospitals. It’s not like in the TV shows or in the movies… in the movies, couples who have fought for years, in the face of danger, suddenly forget their differences and come together. Life doesn’t work that way, however.
When a couple meets a crisis, the result is a caricature of what’s already there in their relationship. We happened to deeply love each other and had open communication. Therefore the crisis drove us to each other. We were unified and trusted each other. Feelings of blame and anger did not creep in. The crisis of Claudia’s illness merely brought to the surface and magnified feelings already present.
