My Deceased Son is Not the Wind

We often go to extremes to comfort ourselves while walking past the very things that will comfort us.  One of the most shocking and unsettling things we experience in this life is losing a loved one. It hurts. To go from having someone in your life that you see and spend time with to them suddenly not being there is disorienting.

I Found A Good Thing

The first time I met my wife, we were both on dates with other people. I use "dates" loosely. We were in junior high and I invited a bunch of my friends to go eat downtown and attend the Nashville Knights hockey game -- there's a rich irony in Katrina and mine's first time together being a hockey game.

A Tribute To My Wife

The picture above was taken of me and Katrina in 8th grade. We had been voted "Cutest" for the yearbook superlatives - lay off the helmet-hair jokes - and sat beside each other to take the photo. We knew of each other, but did not know each other. I thought she was cute - I mean, duh, she won the vote - and felt I had no business sitting beside her for this reason.

Update on Kaleb

We are on Day 36 at the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital with Kaleb. We came in on October 14th with headaches and double-vision. He was treated for a sinus infection for the first week here, but something was still off. At the beginning of our second week here, he went into an unresponsive state.
