Medicine known to man. God bless.
yields great results and starts to shred the witch.
God bless Jim and all your family. He's quite a guy and is very fortunate to have all of you.
Fight with everything you've got and let's bring this Irish win home for him.
I've attached a link below that may help you. This site links people that are going through cancer treatment and allows for great "note sharing". It has been a Godsend from an information and strategic standpoint. Please go there and share your dad's story/treatment strategy and find out what the latest and greatest is out there. It will help with your confidence level and also perhaps open other windows/opportunities.
Peace in Christ.
Similar story - the details aren't really important.
The docs told the old man there was nothing else that could be done - so the first thing he did was plan a trip to SB for the whole family - since it was his most favorite thing - and most favorite place.
Willingham managed to beat Stanford that day.
Enjoy the experience. My very best to Jim.
I'm missing mine a lot right about now. Go, Irish!
My dad is 90 and in failing health. He has been a Notre Dame fan since listening to the ND OSU game in 1935.
This summer he mentioned he would love to see ND win one more NC before he goes. Perhaps some long standing prayers will be answered this coming Monday night.
I'm sure there are other similar anecdotal stories from the NDNation followers.
At least once a year, every year, my dad would bring up his listening to that game on the radio. He would be 92 today. That game in particular and Notre Dame Football in general had a life-lasting effect on him - and I guess you could say, me too. And, obviously, he wasn't the only dad to pass that good onto his son.
I hope your dad has a very enjoyable Monday night, C-3PO. By chance, are you going to the game? Somewhere along the line, I got the sense that you live in Florida.
Live in Louisiana.
the Notre Dame bench will at least once hear "Win it for Jim!"
God bless your dad.
... outcome of the game.
with your father.
My Dad has been in a nursing home for two years this coming January 21. He has Parkinson's and unspecified dementia (not Alzheimer's). He will probably be asleep before the game even begins. I will talk to him in person about the outcome next weekend but it won't matter. I hope if we win I will see something register in his eyes and he will be happy about it.
Of course he will speak to me in detail about something that happened to the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 50's. It's incredibly cruel.
...This is a beautiful story--your description of an ND upbringing with your dad sounds a lot like mine, and probably many people's. I read your piece twice; it made me remember so many similar times with my dad (also a subway, from Chicago). My brother and I are heading to Long Beach (IN) to watch the game with him Monday.
There will be a lot of winners Monday, including Jim. Go Irish!
Prayers for your dad.
God bless you, your father, and your family. Let's win the whole fucking thing.
