Mick McKellar Update -- Day +319
The Helplessness of the Long Distance Father
For the first time since my own crises blossomed, the helpless shoes of the distant parent are on my own feet. Our son-in-law has come through his second craniotomy in two weeks, to remove the bulk of a brain tumor. We call. We read postings on the medical website and on Facebook. We pray. But, we cannot hug or visit in person. It is hard to simply be supportive...long distance.
Chris has come out of the second surgery in good condition with 80% of the tumor removed. More than that, we do not yet know.
Silent Songs and Subtle Silences
I am writing again, and I linked my second poem written today to this message.
