I do have to give my WH props. I was having a rough morning. Went into the bathroom tears streaming down my face with my phone debating on calling him at work. I really hate the thought of calling him while he is out on location. I don't want to distract him cause that can be a very big safety hazard. Anyways, I call. To be honest I had no idea what I wanted or needed out of this phone call.
Him - Hey babe hows it going?
Me- Not well
Him - Are you ok?
Me- Not really
Him- I love you & I am deeply sorry for the pain I have caused you. Let me have it. Get it all out.
Me- No you are at work
Him- Do you need me to come home?
Me- No you are at work.
Him- Screw them its just a job, if you need me I am coming home.
I realized that was exactly what I needed from him at that moment and he came through. We talk a bit longer then hang up. He calls me back about 30 mins later.
Him- I just wanted to make sure you are ok.
Me- Yes I am ok now (and I meant it)
For us this is a big deal. Work has always came 1st. He has missed bdays, anniversary's, fam emergencies because of work. For him to be willing to shut downs his rig with the chance of loosing his job is just... Wow.

This makes me smile. I'm so happy for you and know exactly what a big deal that is. I still can't believe he offered (not sure any of the rig guys I know would). I hope this is the first of many steps you guys can take toward healing!

I'm sorry this morning was rough. Sounds like he really stepped up to the plate and was very supportive. I'm so glad to hear it.
