I love my dad

*update* I was just able to spend a few minutes in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit with my dad and, while groggy and in a massive amount of pain, he is beginning to regain consciousness. He is struggling and hurting but still cracked a joke, pantomiming a talking head with his hand when we told him the doctors raved about how well he did…so my hero. As he drifted in and out I stroked his head and wept thinking about him holding me as a child. I love him.
