I have had many conversations with fellow heart moms regarding our husbands. It seems that many men internalize their feelings regarding their child's defects. There is no discussion of the what-ifs, the fears, the problem at hand. It can be very isolating. But, today, just now, I got a glimpse.
The Mad Scientist told me that he listened to this week's Moth podcast--it was the story of a man facing his two year old daughter's cancer and what it is like for a dad. The Mad Scientist explained that he related totally. I had to listen immediately. I have been wanting to know what goes on in my sweet husband's head for years now.
So, I listened. I cried.
I'm posting this now so maybe other heart mom's can listen and maybe get a glimpse. Please be warned, there is some extreme foul language, but it is more heart-wrenching than anything.
It is a glimpse.
