5.0 out of 5 starsUnconditional Love
Reviewed in the United States on May 14, 2016
Inspirational reading of a family's unconditional love for their son who was seriously wounded in Afghanistan and sent by medivac back to the USA. The story is not about the rights or wrongs of war, but is a collection of almost daily emails. These were sent to family and friends, to keep them updated on son David's health and long-term recovery. At times, the author adds additional notes to clarify some situations but the notes are minimal and take nothing away from the medical and therapy facts, or the emotional toll being experienced by David's father (along with his wife and daughter-in-law - David's wife), as they battle to ensure that David receives the appropriate therapy to ensure he is able to recover from a profoundly serious head trauma. The author was adamant that he was not prepared to settle for his son just being comfortable and stabilised, but required the appropriate care and therapy to bring his son back to the adult he knew, before leaving for Afghanistan. A highly recommended read.
My late husband had a stroke while enlisted in the Army The Veterans did a lot for him in regards to a van and enabled our home to be wheelchair excessible. He server's country for 37 years. Startling in the Air Force then the Navy and on into the Army. Your journal was very much like I kept for advancing and med doses and changes and therapies. God Bless you and your wife for the love and help you gave and I'm sure continue to give.

A timely story told from father's perspective of the recovery process his son went through after severe injuries in war. Sad, yet uplifting to see the devotion of the father and his dedication to helping the son. How fortunate for the son to have a father who was able in many ways to help. Not all are so lucky. The story was well told, both the good and the bad. I only wish there would be an update.
