Hey guys, just an update I suppose.

As some of you know, or have heard from me--my father has cancer.  ( Mesothelioma, lung cancer )
And he is schedualed for surgery at 11am Monday morning to remove his left lung and the pleura around his heart.
This is a pretty serious surgery and he will be on a ventilator possibly from 7 to 14 days depending on his condition.
( but lets hope he heals much faster then that! )
So, I'm here asking--whatever your religion is, please pray for him and my family or at least keep us in your thoughts! 
The power of positive thinking goes a long way!  I wont be around for however long this takes,
but I will try to keep this journal updated in case anyone is interested in his condition!

-Kayla

Update two: sorry its taken me so long guys. Its been a hard week. Dad made it through surgery. But, we didnt get the best news. They did not remove his lung. The cancer has spread and they removed what they could. Now its just trying to get him better and take him home as soon as possible. We will be in this hospital all weekend. Wish us luck. Thank you for all the support.

update three:

It's been a long 12 days!  I have spent 90% of that time in a hospital room and I'm just glad to say I'm home.  My dad was transported from the hospital to a nursing home for the remainder of his physical therapy last night.  It's not the greatest place, or that he agrees with--He's been a healthy independent man his entire life.  But he should be up and walking again in a few weeks! :D

Sending prayers for your father, and sending lots of compliments to you as well. You're a wonderful daughter to him, and he would be really proud of you honestly speaking.

You're a gem of a person, never forget that.

He is very proud of me! :)
Through out the whole 12 days I was with him in the hospital he told every person who walked in who I was, how much he loved me, and how proud he was of me.
I have a wonderful father.

Thank you!

:) Any proud father would. I know I'd have done the same if I was in his shoes.

:hug: God bless you! Honestly - God bless you!
