Heavy Heart

Good Evening Everyone,

I sincerely hope you had a wonderful Valentines Day! Today we received the news that my dad will be leaving for Methodist for a round of chemotherapy tomorrow. His bone marrow test showed activity (meaning the cancer is reviving itself) and with this in mind the doctors decided to take action sooner rather than later. Although I am glad that my dad will get the best possible care, my heart is in fact broken. Its hard to tell all of you what this is like,seeing your family everyday wanting to just enjoy one another's company and love but then knowing that eventually things will be broken apart again because of this awful disease. I vehemently believe that being optimistic and having the right goals in your mind are half of the battle (my dad has been doing great with this) but the other half is in the doctors hands and perhaps even in Gods hands. For those of you who know me I am not particularly religious. The events I have experienced in my life so far have made me question things that I think everybody does eventually ponder upon. Perhaps its time to start trusting in something bigger than science and with that in mind I will pray. I will pray for my dad, for my family, for my friends, and for a cure to cancer. As always thank you for your everlasting love and support.

  1. Many things in life I also do not understand. What I do know is, the true meaning of this life on this earth is LOVE. I believe that is something deep in our souls that when we find it is a gift from GOD. I also believe in the power of positive thought. I will continue to pray and support as much as I can. Love you guy's!

  2. We have had crazy tragic things happen in my immediate family and my sister even battled cancer in her 30's. The power of positivity is very influential in battling things. Look at Auntie Joann - for years her mind was set she would fight and win and she got many more years than the doc's initially thought she would. Cherish the moments you have. Smile, cry, and laugh but most importantly live, love and support.
