    although this is ancient FBorFW story line, we’re in Elizabeth Patterson’s prayers

    For anyone who is a parent.

    While I am sure this was not the author’s intent, this comic strip seems to be implying that John did something we don’t know about, which set the whole “Lizzie is sick” storyline into motion.

    …. huh? How did you get from him being worried sick about her to somehow being responsible for her illness?

    No John, you’re just “being a father”.;-D

    There’s nothing worse than someone you love being sick.

    How can you possibly deduce that? It simply implies he’s a worried parent.

    Am I the only one who thinks it’s strange that their little girl is staying overnight in the hospital and neither of them are there with her?

    SO thankful that neither of my daughters have ever needed an overnight hospital stay; other than annual checkups, they’ve almost never needed to go to the doctors as all!

    Lynn’s Notes:
    Neither Kate nor Aaron was ever so ill that they had to go to the hospital. We did live down the road, however, from a family whose young daughter had Cystic Fibrosis, and the threat of losing her was constant and cruel. Little Christine liked dolls, and I had a sizeable doll collection. I gave her one of my favorite handmade dolls, which started a sweet friendship. Visiting Christine and her family gave me new insight: it requires amazing strength of character to live with a chronic illness.

    I think it’s funny that this strip is available as a framed print. Who the heck would want to see this every day?!

    Our middle daughter had to have surgery when she was six months old. We were in the hospital the night before until 9pm when the doctor who was doing the surgery made his rounds. He thought there was something wrong with us being there. My problem came after she came home and my wife asked me to change her diaper. I couldn’t do it, seeing the knots from the sutures!!

    Remember this strip is over 20 years old. Back then parents weren’t allowed to stay overnight with their kids. And when I was a kid, 30 years before that, parents were allowed only during visiting hours. Hospitals had rules.

    nope not the only one, but I also remember that not so many years ago parents were not allowed to stay with the child when they were in the hospital.
