How do you tell these two little faces that their world is about to be turned upside down? How do you tell the blond that he is going to miss out on school and his friends and hunting and probably some of hockey season? He’s going to be so sad and probably a little bit angry. Heck I’m angry too…that he was born with this and that he has to deal with this his whole life!
BUT what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, right? So we’ll muddle through this the best way we know how and that is by being honest and leaning on each other all the way. I’m scared to death to tell my kids tonight and I can’t even think about it today without tearing up. I’m feeling very weak and vulnerable today. I wish we could just go to sleep tonight and we’d wake up a week from now with this all behind us!
Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers over the next couple weeks. It’s going to be a tough time for all of us.
