Well, the time has come for the big surgery.
BA has been working out a lot to make sure he’s in good shape, in hope that it will help him in his recovery. Still, it will be a long and rough road. We so appreciate your prayers during this time!
My dad is a really strong guy. He has borne more burdens than some people should have to, and he has done so with grace and humility. He is the kind of man who will take off his uniform before going out to eat, so that people won’t try to pay for his meal and things like that. He doesn’t want to be recognized as a hero, despite the fact that he is just that. He is a stalwart leader, who brings honor to his country and his family by how he acts when no one is around to give praise.
That being said, the overwhelming response of love and support is what keeps him going. He sent this to me this evening:
One Team, One Fight. BA Strong ❤
