Prayers Needed

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

My father-in-law told my husband yesterday that his cancer is back. He had thyroid cancer a couple of years ago and they removed his thyroid, plus he takes these radioactive pills once a year to treat the remaining cancerous cells. Well now the doctors tell him the cancer is spreading and they think it's in his bloodstream.

My husband is having a hard time dealing with it because he is the only one who knows. My father-in-law hasn't told my mother-in-law or brother-in-law yet and my husband doesn't know when he will. He said his Dad told him to look out for his brother and mother and then started telling him about things he wanted to get done around the house. My husband said it was almost as if he was resigned to the fact that he was going to die and he just had this list of stuff he wanted to get done first. VERY SAD

My father-in-law is only 64 years old - way too young! I ask you to say a prayer for him. Thanks Spark Friends...
