  • Veteran husband, Iron Horse Strong

    Jun 11, 2013

    FORT CARSON, Colo. -- His daily routine is defined by his son, the challenges almost commonplace. On a good night, his son sleeps straight through. On a bad night, he'll be up a couple of times. His 16-month-old alarm clock wakes him up around 8 or 9 a.m. Next is feeding his son breakfast, followed by cleaning up the vomit, which happens after every meal. Typically he'll have a couple hours of recovery before the next feeding/vomit cycle. After that, it's the appointment of the day; at least 3 times a week. Then, they eat dinner, clean-up the mess, bath time, and then bed, to start the pattern all over again. For some men, the challenge of dealing with the host of medical problems that come with taking care of a premature child and its associated medical problems would be daunting, to say the least. To Morgan Waterman, though, it's just what he does.
