That Day… A Father’s Perspective

I just had to tell my son that he has cancer. Out of all the worst days of my life, this had to be the hardest one. He has faced pneumonia, a stroke, even fatty embolisms in his lungs. I thought that the hardest thing he would have to face would be the effects of DMD. All of that has, and will, really suck. Telling my son he has cancer was not on the radar. And as I sit here feeling sorry for him and myself, he is working past the devastating pain by singing Christian music. He has a gift of faith that exceeds my own by seven times seven times seven. He is and will be a better man than me. I envy him.
