Battle

Battle

A Poem by Daniel Gardner
"

This is an update on my son's condition.

"













We have slain the beast
Or severed its head at least
For it is like a Hydra
To say the least

It is Malignant
For this we must treat
But the battle is won
We made the enemy retreat

It will be back
So we prepare our counter attack
No telling when or where
Whether it will be here or there
All we can do is prepare

For the war is not over
But right now I don't care
I will protect my son
No one will ever touch a hair

Author's Note

Daniel Gardner
Thank you all for your kind words and undeserved kindness. My son made it through the surgery very well. The surgery was meant to be 5-8hrs but they finished in 3hrs. They removed it all but the tumor was malignant meaning it will grow back. It has been sent off for test to see if it is a 3 which does not spread and grows slowly or if it is a 4 which can spread and grows quickly. They did not have to remove any of his brain. The brain is just pushed over in the after MRI. It was the size of a grape fruit. We have a long road ahead but for now we can breath. He is awake and responding. They took out his breathing tube and some of the I.V's and needles. He gets moved from I.C.U to the cancer center tomorrow. Please keep up the encouraging words and reviews. They are extremely helpful and soothing to us. Also we are looking to see about releasing a book of poems and my story. All which are on here. We need a lot of help has this is a really bad strain to us financially. If we can get tons of reviews and and comments we can take that to a radio station or something to try and get a sponsor us. Please help us reach our goal. We will do this thru hard work not charity.

It's great that the surgery went so well. It's tragic that illnesses like this can happen. It's beautiful all the love that people can show. Your poem shows how much you care. Very well penned. Best wishes.

I'm sorry I didn't review this sooner. That would be excruitatingly(don't know if I spelled that right or if it's a word) heartbreaking if it happened to someone I loved dearly. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers, and I'll tell my friends to keep you and your family in their prayers as well. Great write; I hope you can reach your goal.
