Having shared parenting is challenging enough….but it was obvious from the first moments in the emergency room that Ian’s dad and I would do anything and everything to take care of him.
I don’t know a parent who wouldn’t do this for their child.
But I’m talking about more than getting along for the sake (and health of a child).
I’m talking about doing whatever is necessary….
Staying up late, waking up at 2 a.m., giving shots, testing blood, reading, recording and logging, calling and reporting….all of it…there is nothing that I will say no to, nothing I will balk at, nothing I will refuse to do or blow off because it seems like a minor detail.
It is at the moment when your child is this sick that you realize you would do anything to take away their pain and fear.
I’d take a zillion insulin shots and give hundreds of vials of blood if it meant he would not have to.
