In honor of Father's Day....a selection of pictures featuring my Dad. I'm very blessed to still have Dad in my life. In June of 1999, my dad had an on-the-job accident that resulted in severe head trauma. He was a cable splicer for the local telephone company and fell from the ladder while working on cable lines. We were given little hope for his survival, let alone recovery of any sort. Thankfully, he came through much better than predicted. Yes, there are challenges--some memory loss and aphasia (difficulty verbalizing exactly what he wants to say--particularly when upset or over-stimulated) among them--but I am very thankful that he's still here.
Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there in the blogosphere!
