Dude. I hope your little man will one day appreciate the good luck he has/had with a father who was THERE. (And loved him to pieces, as you clearly do.)

Most of my friends hardly ever saw their fathers except when he was in a bad mood at the end a soul-crushing work day -- a dad wanted supper, the news, a ball game, and not to be bothered by ANYone's problems.

I was mighty damn lucky -- my father was a happy man who had a job he enjoyed (farming) which means he was present and usually feeling cheerful. Unless the cows got out... unless the hired man left in a huff, with no warning...

(I also think he was able to sneak some "afternoon delight" with my mom while we kids were at school!)

Yep! I’m still sick, but compared to how I WAS.... lord I feel better

Like, if I’d been fine all week and woke up how I’m feeling right now, I’d still go to the doctor lol. But since I was living in hell this is a relief 🤣

Thanks for caring!
