Dan must be feeling it too...

Dan tells me he worries more about me than thinks about Isla now. I can see how that can happen but I'm consciously trying to make sure I ask him how he is doing too. 

Here's a poem from a dad's point of view:

     It must be very difficult

To be a man in grief,
since "men don't cry"
and "men are strong"
No tears can bring relief.

It must be very difficult
To stand up to the test,
And field the calls and visitors
So she can get some rest.

They always ask if she's alright
And what she's going through,
But seldom take his hand and ask,
"My friend, but how are you?"

He hears her crying in the night
And thinks his heart will break.
He dries her tears and comforts her,
But "stays strong" for her sake.

It must be very difficult
To start each day anew.
And try to be so very brave-
He lost his baby too.
