Glen was transferred to a hospital in Shirley’s ‘work’ city. Visiting him became part of her daily routine.
From Wednesday to Sunday she would jog to the hospital each morning, (weather permitting, if not, a bus). She’d stay with Glen for about forty minutes, then jog to work, (weather permitting).
When she left work she would go to the hospital, then meet friends for dinner or eat alone.
On Monday and Tuesday she would go to the home city, take photos of Zac to show Glen on Wednesday.
The doctors commended her on being so brave and positive.
“I wish the other wives were as confident as you…” they said, among other kudos. Shirley accepted the praise. It was undeserved.
