Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you're most afraid of
Ok, let’s get real for a second.  My father has cancer. Actually, he has two different kinds of cancer.  He has skin cancer (but not the bad kind, phew) and prostate cancer.  In the past year and a half he has been through a lot, including 9 weeks of radiation while still working a full time job. It seems as if radiation has done its job, but it’s a long process to make sure. You have to wait months and months after the actual treatment to be sure. That’s where we are….just waiting.
When I first found out, besides being worried about the obvious, I thought about how much it meant to me that my father be able to walk me down the aisle when I got married someday.  One of my biggest fears is that he won’t be around to walk me down the aisle.

We found out about his cancer sometime in 2011, so my fears have subsided a bit.  He is doing great after treatment and walking down the aisle is something that I actually see in my near future now that I have C in my life. I am praying that he continues to stay healthy and that soon this won’t be a worry in my life at all, because he will be healed!

  1. I came across your blog from Story of My Life. My dad was admitted into the hospital for chest pain. It turned out to be nothing serious but your post struck a cord with me. I guess I am still emotional about the possibilities of what could have happened today.

    I will pray for you dad and for you. God Bless.
