This is so sad!

Before reading the article I wanted to say something like “Talk about starting with the ‘for worse’ part!”

But then I read he’s fighting a losing battle against brain cancer and that he’s seeking alternate treatment and things aren’t looking good.

Now I just feel so sad for the wife!

I work in a Children’s Hospital and I have to admit that my heart absolutely sings with this article. The disease is sad and nobody has any say over that. The caregivers will try their utmost to cure it.

 But in the face of terrible tragedy it is always inspiring to see people still live their lives. I see this as a story of joy. Not a story of sadness. Good for them for embracing the moment and rejoicing in today.

@JenGirl:  I really like your take on it. I felt so sad reading it and I fully admit I cried given my own family situation right now. However, you’re right – the kindness of strangers allowed them to have a wedding and that is joyous. 

I really hope he has a positive outcome.

@MrsPanda99:  & @bmo88:  It isn’t always easy caring for patients with serious and sometimes life threatening conditions. But one of the great silver linings is that it really helps you appreciate what you have. It’s hard to be mad that you can’t afford a photobooth at your wedding when your patient (who you adore) is excited to make it through a day without a seizure. Most of my patients don’t want to be pittied. They want to enjoy what they can and be helped when they need it. This story exemplifies a couple that really went for what they wanted. And a community who helped them achieve that. And a couple that was able to accept and cherish that help. Cheers all around!!! May all our weddings be so loving and joyful!
