How We Spent Our 44th Wedding Anniversary


When one talks about celebrating a wedding anniversary we usually imagine flowers, a special dinner out on the town or maybe a gourmet home cooked meal and a nice bottle of wine. These are just a few ways that we’ve celebrated our anniversary in the past.

This year we celebrated 44 years at the hospital. We certainly didn’t plan this and I wouldn’t necessarily even have mentioned it except that my husband who is being treated for pneumonia asked a good friend to take our picture to commemorate this special day.

All visitors have to put on a mask and wear a gown before stepping into my husband’s room. It’s a good look, don’t you think?

For friends and family who know Kevin please be assured that he’s on the mend but he’ll need to be in the hospital for a few more days until his oxygen levels are stable. For now he’s resting and is in good spirits.

  1. Carol, there is a lot of better ways to spend an anniversary … but there will plenty of time for that.
    Congratulations … to your years together … and only the best for those that will follow.

    • I could never understand couples who would say that they had nothing to talk about when they were alone together. Spending so much time with my husband these last few days I can gauge how he’s doing by how much we talk. The first day in the hospital he slept most of the day and by day 2 he slept less and we talked more. On our actual anniversary day I told the nurse that it was our anniversary and he started to cry. Such an emotional guy. I love him.

    • Thanks Cee. He was in the hospital for a week. He had pneumonia and the flu but luckily he pulled through and was released from the hospital today. He’ll be resting for a few more days before he can return to normal activities but his cough has almost completely disappeared.

  2. All the best to Kevin. I wish him a speedy recovery. I did not know that pneumonia was a disease one could contract. Was this a rare strain of the ailment? Still happy anniversary to you both.
