Only for a minute or two did I feel bad that I couldn't do my part as the submissive one. But the thought didn't linger long. I realized that life happens. People suffer. Energy levels are what they are and as people we see that we can only do so much in certain circumstances - this being one of them. How nice it is that two people can put aside their D/s roles (even though we thoroughly know they will return once health is restored) and just care for another as any compassionate person would. And that is how she responded. She kept me at rest and kept me cared for the entire weekend. I left for work on Monday more refreshed and so glad I ad made the trip that Saturday afternoon to be with her.
