  • I love my husband.

  • I love him even though his snoring wakes me up every morning.

  • So I'll scare him awake.

  • It's my daily revenge.

  • Argh...

  • Say you're sorry! Say you're sorry!

  • I don't hear it! I can't hear you!

  • Ok, ok... I'm sorry! I'm sorry!

  • (laughter)

  • I can't go back to sleep now that you woke me up. Oh God!

  • Boom!

  • Food Network says you should only put one item in your eggs.

  • But Louie likes everything in them because it's how his mom made them.

  • He calls it "eggs with everything."

  • I call it gross,

  • but that's how he loves them.

  • My favorite! It's so good!

  • And I do all the laundry,

  • because my mom told me that a man with dirty clothes is a man that's not loved by his wife.

  • Yeah, I know it's old-fashioned.

  • But now his whites are always white, and all his co-workers will know he's loved.

  • He always promises to do it next time, but I'll never let him.

  • And I know he loves me.

  • Because every time I head off to work, I feel him watching me leave.

  • Hey Cill!

  • You look beautiful.

  • One of my favorite things is my commute to work.

  • It's my time to myself, and it lets me clear my head before the stress of the day.

  • Cecilia

  • It looks like you have FCED or Fuchs' corneal endothelial dystrophy.

  • I'm going blind.

  • A rare disease I can barely pronounce is taking away my vision

  • and I will probably lose my whole career over it.

  • I won't be able to scare Louie anymore.

  • Wake up!

  • Don't do that!

  • You ok? I'm sorry.

  • Just leave me alone.

  • What am I supposed to tell him?

  • Are you ok?

  • Yeah.

  • You sure?

  • Oh gosh...

  • (No, that's ok. Let me do it. Let me do it.) I can't make his silly eggs with everything.

  • - I'm sorry. I'm sorry about what I just did. - Can you just stop it? Let me just do it.

  • Did you just have a bad dream?

  • Can you just lay off? Alright?!

  • I'm sorry about what I did today. I didn't mean to scare you. I'm sorry... sorry about that.

  • The people he works with are going to think I stopped caring about him.

  • Just talk to me, ok?

  • I don't want to talk about it right now.

  • Cecilia, come on, come here.

  • Something is wrong.

  • You're not talking to me. Please tell me what's going on.

  • And now when all I want to do is breathe and walk to work alone.

  • I can't... because Louie won't let me.

  • How do you tell the person you love that you're going blind?

  • I can't help but think that I'm becoming his patient not his partner.

  • Maybe he'd be happier with someone else.

  • Someone who won't be a burden.

  • My wife is going blind... and she doesn't want my help.

  • I want to wake up every morning and tell her that I love her.

  • That it's all going to be ok

  • But she doesn't want to hear any of it.

  • I wish I could do all the cooking, but she insists on doing it on her own.

  • She's even figured out the laundry.

  • She still insists on going to work and taking the bus alone.

  • My heart stops every time I think about her crossing the streets in downtown.

  • So even though she doesn't want me to,

  • I follow her everyday without her knowing.

  • Because that's what true love is, right?

  • There's more than just a feeling.

  • It's an action.

  • Cecilia will never know how much I do for her, and I don't ever need her to know.

  • That's how I still love her

  • even though she doesn't want me to.

I love my husband.
