Well, it's finally come. Tyler is gone. He made weight and left Beckley at around noon. The last I heard from him, he was at Golden Coral and had about 2 hours still on the road. That was at 3:00pm.
Yesterday, he picked me up from lunch and when he dropped me off,the last time I saw him, it was SO hard to let go. People kept asking me why I didn't take the day off work and on one hand, I wish I would have. On the other hand I probably would have been hysterical instead of just breaking out crying every now and then. I didn't really cry once I got back to work. I actually had a patient tell me I was sound so professional when I answered the phone which made me feel about <---that much better. I cry everytime his name is mentioned, but I can pretty much get through without crying other than that. It should be noted, for those of you who don't know, that I cry at everything, for example I seriously bawled at the movies Full Metal Jacket and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (both nowhere near what could be considered chick flicks).
I made a heart out of a pink paper clip for Tyler to take with him. I told him to carry it in his pocket and think of me. At lunch, he told me he had something similar for me in front of the TV at home. Then I got home, it was this:
I broke down again. It is a coin and I am going to carry it in my pocket at all times.
That's all for now. I'll keep you all up to date when I hear from him.
