Photohunt Heart

I had wanted to put a photo of my husband’s chest scar, after his recent heart surgery, but he wouldn’t let me unleash that on the internet!

While he was in hospital, they recommended that he take off all jewellery. So I wore his wedding rings around my neck, symbolically next to my heart, while he was there.

It was a real comfort to have them so close to me – every time I missed him, or wanted to tell him something, I could just reach for the chain around my neck and give the rings a little caress.

Now, he did put them back on when he’d recovered and was out of ICU, but he took them off again for a final X-ray. And currently cant find them. The search continues, but in the meantime this photo is even more important than ever.

  1. My husband had heart surgery in 2010 and I thought of using a pic of him in the hospital, but thought better of it. I hope he finds his rings.

  2. That photo is precious!
    I’m not sure we were ready for the skin shot either 🙂
    Thanks for joining The Saturday PhotoHunt. . . come leave your link!

  3. Ha! Found the rings!!!!

    I was checking the pockets of his trousers before putting them in the laundry basket, and there they were, in a box with his pink ear-plugs. I shall be smiling all day, and giggling at the “what has it got in its pocketseses?”-ness of it. 🙂
