The HLHS Dad on The Mighty!
This is the third entry in my series on Fatherhood this month. Enjoy!
I’ve had the great honor of having a post I wrote featured on the website The Mighty (themighty.com). For those of you who are unfamiliar with the site, it’s a really fantastic website where powerful stories are shared about/by individuals or families facing disabilities, disorders, or chronic health conditions. It’s updated very regularly and I can’t say enough about how amazing these stories are. There are even several stories on there about CHDs, even before this knucklehead showed up.
To stick with the theme of Fatherhood this month, I wrote about how Nolan’s battle with HLHS has made me a better man. I would be really thankful if you took a moment to read it here (and share!):
As a man, as a husband, and as a father, I will forever be a work in progress…so by no means does this article mean I have it all figured out. Far from it. In fact, I would love it if a couple years down the line I would look back at this and think about how far I’ve come even since then. It’s a marathon, friends…let’s no forget it. But we’re running together and the goal of it is for all of us to win it…together.
