It's just after 6:00 am and I can't sleep. The sky is lightening but it's still dark out. My head is filled with pressure and I'm miserable. I can't lie down because when I do half my head fills up and it's uncomfortable. I hate having a cold.
On the other hand, I have to share the sweetest thing I've seen in a long time. It's the video where a small child gets surprised at school by his father who has just come home from Iraq. The look on the child's face as he runs into his daddy's arms is priceless. You can see how happy he is and how relieved he is. For now it's on the front page of the today show webpage. It's just how I felt on the Thursday when my dad was up and around after being on the ventilator for two days. The joy was indescribable.
