I can’t wait until November 5th 2010. It will be the day when my dad proves all the doctors wrong. On May 5th 2010 the surgeon gave my Dad 3 – 6 months to live. Well we will celebrate his 6th month anniversary on November 5th or some time there about. He is still taking chemo therapy and the doctor says he is improving. Our only problem is that he still suffers from rectal bleeding and today he went into the hospital for chemo and wound up in the ER with a hemoglobin of 6.0. Normal is 12-16 for most healthy men.
I’ve noticed that he has been laying around again and suggested he see the doctor but as usual he says "I’ll be alright". If they could stop the bleeding then I would truly believe that. however I do believe that God is able and in the healing business. I pray that he will touch my dad and enlighten the doctors to control this problem. I can’t imagine not having my dad around. I can’t even wrap my mind around it. So if you are reading this I would appreciate your prayers. I’m off to pick up the kids from school and then I’ll be visiting my dad in the trauma room of my hospital. I know my co-workers will take good care of him. They have been calling me all morning. I feel bad that I didn’t notice him looking pale. But even if I did tell him he wouldn’t listen to me. LOL he never does.
If you still have your parents in your life even if they get on your last nerve give them a call, hug them, take them out to dinner. Let them know how much they mean to you.
