Hello everyone. I have been gone for a few days due to being in the hospital with my son. I have always cherished the time I get to spend with him but the last few days have been slightly different. He will typically want to play with daddy but let mommy rock him or lay down with him when it is time to sleep. While in the hospital he wanted nothing to do with his mommy or nana, all he wanted was to be eld by his daddy. I can not explain how this made me feel. I would have changed places with him in a instant as would most parents but the fact that he wanted only me was an amazing feeling. Twist of faith I have changed places with him he is feeling much better and running and playing and I am the one laying in bed with a fever and aches. Unfortunatly he ran in to the bed room this morning and the first words out of his mouth was shop daddy lets go to shop. I had to tell him no and stay in bed just being thankful he feels better even if it meant that I cought he illness. Cant wait until I feel better so that when as again I can say LET”S GO.

I am glad to hear that your son is feeling better. It is a sign of the bond that exists between the two of you when he wanted to be with you during his personal crisis.

Now we need to work on getting you back into shape.

I wish you well and hope you get back to your “normal” routine with your son soon.

There is no more painful and helpless feeling than watching one of your kids laying in a hospital bed. I’ve been there too. Thankfully, my daughter’s story had a happy ending also. God bless you both.

It’s moments like this that let us know that there is more to being a man than being macho. At 14 months old my son spent 5 days in a children’s hospital after an emergency surgery, my wife and I never left his side. Being there and seeing one of the nurses, a male about 6’ 3’’ 240lbs. who looked tough as nails, care for my son as tenderly as any woman would have was a real eye opener. I realized how tough he must be to have to see all those kids in pathetic circumstances and keep enough strength not to just weep. I have the bond you speak of with both of my boys, now 9 and 6. There aren’t too many things in this world that can touch me like their unconditional love.
Glad your son is doing better now its your turn.

Prayers for you and your son. Your note even impacted my computer. My screen went out of focus for a short while.

Thank you all for the kind comments and prayers they are greatly appreciated. My son is up and running like new again with the only effects of his hospitl stay being a missed ear infection which resulted in a ruptured ear drum. That issue is being addressed on the legal front now. However other thab the irritating ear drops he has to tke two to three ties a day he is acting normal again. AGAIN thanks for the kind thoughts and prayers.

I think stuff like this is especially hard on those that are called to help others when the chips are down, so to speak. Medics are supposed to be able to fix things quickly but then there’s this reality thing… I don’t know about you, but it’s one thing to be able to remain detached on a “patient,” and another thing when those emotional boundaries don’t hold because “the patient” is one of your own…
