My dad is not well
He has not been well for a long time
We are reaching a critical juncture on this journey with him.
Lots more on that later. Maybe.
I was talking to a friend today who is deathly afraid McCain will win. I said, "I am afraid of that as well." We were both pretty bummed about that prospect, the economy, my dad, etc.
Then about an hour after our doom and gloom conversation, this same friend sent me a note. It simply said: "Barack is going to win and your father will see it, just like he saw Avery!"
Well that just about made me cry. And I think (hope) he is right. My dad has already voted for Barack. He has baptized my daughter. I feel really lucky. But I do know, he would like to live to see the day…
