After affirmation and waking up properly, the wife had everything in place, honey you don’t have to worry about a thing.
What about work? The wife told him “it is your off day get in the shower; the car is waiting”. (She had already arranged for off days at his workplace) Every question was met with a prompt but sweet answer!
The Hubby was like a little baby throughout the trip. She narrated this when she came to say a thank you! This was a lifetime Memory the hubby will forever cherish.
