Hubby Sets Up “Date Nights” Outside Wife’s Hospital Room Window
Date nights are important, and one guy is going out of his way to keep them going with his wife while she’s in the hospital on bed rest ahead of the birth of their baby boy. Shona Moeller can’t be with her husband, Bob Conlin, for in-person date nights because of coronavirus restrictions, but he visits her from outside, holding up signs she can see from her hospital room window and dropping off treats for her to enjoy on their “dates.”
Since the couple can’t be together, Bob sets up outside and dines with Shona from afar. He’s a relationship coach, so he knows how important maintaining these connections is and a few weeks into Shona’s hospital stay, he asked her out on a “date.” Now they have dates three or four times a week, with Saturdays being “special date nights,” which include extras like flowers and other surprises. Sometimes he even brings friends along to hang out outside since she can’t have visitors.
Shona’s in the Hinsdale, Illinois, hospital because her water broke halfway through her pregnancy and she could go into labor any time. Her due date isn’t until August 10th, but the couple now expects she’ll give birth by June 29th. Bob says their date nights help give his wife a break and a bit of normalcy while they wait. “She’s in there by herself and she can’t even leave her room,” he explains. “I wanted her to feel special and loved.”
