It's times like these that families hug each other a lot, and cry a lot, and try to savor those sweet moments that are so good, and try to push out the bad and hope it all goes away. I know. I heard about all that in the years since my recovery. And one of the things my Dad did back then -- when I was sick and there wasn't much he could do for me -- has had a lasting effect on a whole lot of people. And now it's part of me too.
