Father and Son Finally Meet

December 4, 2010
This week has been very challenging and emotional. Tim had many downs with the clots and blood pressure issues. His hemoglobin was low today but hopefully the blood they gave him will help. His spirits have improved thanks to some visits from his wonderful Presby friends. I will never be able to repay them for all their kindness! This morning was very emotional as he told me and the hospital chaplain that he was not afraid to die, he was only afraid that his son would not know how much he loved him.

After the challenges this week and this morning, the doctor made an exception and allowed us to bring Spencer to meet his daddy. Finally after almost four weeks, father and son met for the first time. It was a beautiful moment that we will always cherish. After Spencer left, Tim looked at me and said, “We did good”.
