My father-in-law is very dear to me and of course my husband. Right now he is in the hospital, recently diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer in the neck. We’ve been coping with all of the tests, the surgeries, the complications. But Tuesday he collapsed again, and this time they’ve found that one of the tumors has wrapped around his carotid artery and is very close to his jugular. It is causing his heart and BP to go haywire and he is touch and go at this point. If he makes it through this period, if we can get the tumor to shrink a little away from his artery, if he keeps his strength for the more aggressive treatment… but right now my husband and I are just terrified about the next few days.
I cannot imagine a world without him in it, and I lost my mother nearly 20 years ago and don’t want to see my husband go through that horrid time. I especially am sad for my children who are 3 & 5 and adore their Papa.
If you could lift up Mario in your prayers, and his wife Janet and our family. Please pray for the Lord’s healing powers and comforting love to Mario, for His strength for all of us, and for wisdom and expediency for his doctors. I just wish I could go and shut off my feelings and my mind for a few minutes respite, and yet it seems crazy to be so unbelievably sad when I know my poor husband is 1000 times worse than I am, with the added responsibility of caring for his mother and making life decisions for his dad.
Thank you all -
