Mid-Life Parenting

I’m a mid-life parent.

My wife and I have been married 26 years and we have an 8-year old son.

This morning we are headed to one of his doctors, a Gastroenterologist.

Just before his 4th birthday, and right after we returned from our summer vacation, we started to notice some unusual physical complications.

We tested him for many things.  Leukemia, IBD, JRA, etc.

A litany of blood tests and x-rays, including a barium x-ray and a full-body scan (45-minute x-ray).  Specialists.  Challenges.  Screaming.  Worry.  Despair.  Hope.  Faith.  Love.

He also had three colonoscopies between his 4th and 5th birthdays.

Anyway, one of the benefits of having a blog is that you can write what you feel, when you feel like it.

I just did.

Hope you have a great Tuesday.  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
