As I write this post I am awaiting the death of my father-in-law Bobby. I don't mean to sound disrespectful or harsh, but it's reality. (And, that's what you get with me. I tend to tell it like it is. Not always a good thing, but that's me.) My father-in-law was recently diagnosed with cancer. Within a month's time the cancer has spread to every part of his body except his liver & colon. Unfortunately the last few days we have seen just how harsh this disease can be. Bobby is no longer aware of his actions nor his comments. With every breath we wonder if it will be his last. Doctors have informed us there is nothing more to do & it should not be much longer until he dies. In fact, they are now giving him two different kinds of medicine just to make him comfortable. Bobby knows that the end is here & as a result he is very anxious & nervous. We are hoping the new medicines will ease his anxiety & give him a sense of peace. Would you please keep our family in your thoughts & prayers as we face many uncertainties the next couple of days?
