A Utah dad received a truly special ‘get well’ card from his daughter.
When Cody Duffin was hospitalized with pancreatitis, his daughter Tabatha made a hilarious card to cheer him up.
The card features a drawing of an angry pancreas and a note, which reads “I don’t know why, but your pancreas hates you. Just wait while the other organs teach it how to love you again. Don’t worry, it’s a quick learner.”
Tabatha, who turned 14 this past weekend, clearly knew how to lift her dad’s spirits. Cody loved the card so much, he posted it on Reddit.
Cody told The Huffington Post that he enjoyed his daughter’s joke. “When she first handed it to me, I thought it was the cutest thing,” he said. “I love how she was able to shine somewhat humorous light on something that was causing me a great deal of physical pain.”
He also praised Tabatha’s creativity. “She’s always been a sweetheart and loves to draw pictures for family,” he explained. “What I think people would enjoy about this picture is the caricatures and the simplistic beauty of the cartoonistic organs banding together to love the pancreas to death.”
Cody commented on the Reddit thread that doctors believe his pancreatitis was a bad reaction to medication. He told HuffPost he is currently home resting and dealing with another medical issue.
Wishing this dad a speedy recovery!
