  • You ever have those moments that you wish you never lived through? Those events you wished you hadn't seen because you just keep replaying them over and over and over again in your head? But then at the same time you're glad you were there because it was better than being hundreds of miles away?

    I legitimately believed I was watching my father die earlier tonight. He is 56. My 20th birthday is in 3 days. Nothing in the world could ever be worse than that feeling. Thank god he is still with me. Thank god that we are lucky enough to have quick and educated medical experts in this country. Thank god.
