I Need Some Help....

So far I've posted extremely random shit... But not today... Growing up gay, you come to terms with shit other people take for granted... I will never have the 4 bedroom ranch and picket fence, the perfect wife, the 2.2 kids, and a dog that chews my slippers... I wont be growing old with her, watching our children grow and mature into men and women, that we are extremely proud of... That being said... I am truly okay with that... I've dealt with it, and have moved on with my life, as it should be. A HUGE part of that coping process, however, has been my nieces and nephews, they are my babies, and I adore every single one of them, as if they are my own. I am extremely proud of the people they are growing up to be, and I feel a big part of that process.
I will be traveling to Alabama on Wednesday... My 14 year old nephew... Justin... Football, Basketball, Baseball, Extreme Skater, Dirt Biker, Gamer, even Golf... Hes my little daredevil... Me as a kid... Hes been diagnosed with a disease... Avascular Necrosis... He will be undergoing surgery on Wednesday morning... He has been told by the doctors that he will never play sports again, he is looking at hip replacement sooner than later, and arthritis will play a major role in his life, he will have limited mobility for the rest of his life.
I remember 14... My fears... My thoughts about the future, and never once did any of the things my little man is going through or will go through ever crossed my mind.
I ask a favor to whoever reads this post... On Wednesday, Valentines Day... light a candle, say a prayer to whatever God, Goddess, or Deity you worship... If you don't have one... Send a good thought or positive energy... Just for my nephew to come through the surgery okay and for him to be at peace with his new path... You don't have to comment on this post... But good vibes are more than welcome...

Not often does a blog post make me cry, but this one just did. Your nephew is in my thoughts, truly.

I know you know this... but my prayers are with you both. Sending those "good vibes" do make a difference and you can count on mine being there.

You're a great friend Syn & please call on me for anything...

XXOO, Kaori

God's speed and my best for a safe surgery and an amazing recovery.

I wish I could give you a reason as to why the world is poorly made, but I can't.

You and he have my prayers. A candle is lit.
