This is the strangest thing that being ill has brought me. He phones, he drives long long distances at the drop of a hat to bring me to and from doctors and hospitals. He messes about with car seats and air conditioning and a selection of cds to make the car journeys as enjoyable as he thinks he can. He gives me his strange version of pep talk and shows sincere concern and affection. I feel I never met this man before.
And even weirder is the fact that I cherish it all.
