Please pray for my Dad

I just emailed my step-mom since neither of us can talk at work. I'll let you know when I hear more.

It feels great to have you guys watching out for me.

Please pray for my Dad

Update: Dad has been on radiation since 1/15. He's supposed to get 10 days and then stop. So, if I'm counting right, hell stop radiation on my birthday (1/24). He has a follow-up with his oncologist on 2/5 and they want to do another colonoscopy.

SM says he is a mess. The radiation made him really weak and is unable to have loose or solid poo. All liquid.

My heart broke when i read it. I had to step outside and let it go. I found some reasonable tickets on Southwest. $82 + taxes each way. Ill try to go up for a weekend every couple of months[

Below is him walking me down my aisle 2 years ago. Best day of my life.

I'm so sorry. Watching my dad decline was the hardest thing I've ever done. Sending prayers and hugs.

I'm glad he walked you down the isle, I love the dress!!!

Thank you! When he was first diagnosed, it was before I was with my now-DH. I made him promise he'd walk me down my aisle. The night of my wedding, i pulled my dad aside and said he has to pinky promise to be around when I have kids.

I love my dress! It was hard finding a red wedding dress in my $$ range. And i had to get a costume veil because not a single bridal boutique approved of me wanting a black veil. The whole ensemble is very much me. Lol.

What a beautiful picture-you and your Dad look smashing! Gorgeous dress!!
That is so wonderful about you finding the Southwest tickets. Go as soon as you can -I'm sure it would mean so much to him! You will be very glad you went.

Picture

You will always treasure the pictures. I lost my parents within 6 months of one another, at the ages of 86 and 91 and you NEVER HAVE THEM long enough.
Let us know when you're going to see him.

I'm glad you found some better prices on SW. They may even make you smile during the pre-flight presentation. . You won't regret having the extra time with him.

I guess I was so blunt because when people become fragile there are just no guarantees. My husband declined so rapidly it was amazing and very sad. People were stunned. Which is why I say "seize the day."

Love the red dress!

Outwest - i understand where the bluntness comes from. Im not mad nor offended.

I think i'm still really young and stupid about these things. Like if i ignore it, its not real. Remember as a kid, if you cant see the boogie man, he can't see you?
