I'm catching a plane up there tomorrow, I feel like I need to be there and do whatever I can. He will be fine, but it's hard being so far away when something like this happens. If nothing else, I can look after my siblings and help out with the practical things. He has always been there for me in my time of need, and I will do nothing less. If all I can do is hold his hand and promise everything will be okay, that is what I'll do.
Please send good thoughts and cross your fingers. I'm a big daddy's girl (I have written about him before), and I really need him to get well this time too.
