That said, it isn't completely lost on me that I'm experiencing ear infection-related hearing loss in my right ear right now, just as my sweet Logan is losing -- permanently -- the hearing in his own right ear. It's merely another tangible way that my sunshine and I are connected, and while mine (prayerfully!) is temporary and his is not, it gives me a window into his experience, a deeper, more profound understanding of a fraction of what he's going through as a direct result of the evil that is this cancer. It awakens in me a renewed sense of vigor, a refreshed sense of fight. Because, to be blunt, it sucks to be unable to hear, and it's easy to forget what a blessing all of my senses are when they're all in working order.
For all of this, I'm thankful.
