Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 88 – Cultural Changes And A Hospital

My son had an emergency appendectomy last night. My wife and I stayed up all night with him through surgery.

As I sit around a pediatric hospital tonight, I’m heartened to see the other fathers that are sitting with their sick children. In years gone by, it would only have been the mothers and grandmothers.

Cultural changes are always happening. I hope that the volunteer ethic is changing in all of us.

I also hope my son feels better soon.

    I hope he’s on the mend now. That is not a good way to spend your spring break. Kudos to you for being there with him and for keeping up with your challenge with so much going on. You inspire me.

    Thanks Gretchen!

    Yes, he’s on the mend. He was doing so well they released him early. We’re looking forward to letting him have a chance to do a little tourism tomorrow.
