Because of my weakened condition, the additional stress of surgery and blood loss presented the very real prospect that the next surgery could be my last.

With this in mind, my parents would make the evening before surgeries extremely special. They’d bring me a gift, my siblings would visit, we’d eat pizza, down milkshakes, and stay up late. We’d do our very best to ignore the painful reality before us. The focus was on me.

That’s how I spent my nights when I thought they might be my last.

How would you want to spend yours?
