If anyone out there could send some thoughts, good vibes, prayers – whatever it is that you do – the way of my future Father-In-Law, it would be greatly appreciated.
He’s had cancer for a few years. My Fiance has gotten two emails in a row from him that the experimental treatment he was getting is not working and he seems to be getting worse. He’s not sure what they’re going to recommend at this point.
He’s a great man who I would be proud to have as a Father-In-Law. He said he was so excited about our wedding and that was giving him strength to hang in there. He’s the closest family Fiance has. He and his mom have a strained relationship (parents are divorced, dad raised him) and his brother is deployed in Kuwait and may not make it to our wedding. I really want Father-In-Law to be able to make it. He’s several states away from us so it’s not like we can go see him often.
Fiance isn’t an emotional guy but he’s a bit broken up about it. Me too. Hopefully we can all send some love, prayers, and good vibes his way so he can pull through. Thanks.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your Fiance. It sounds like he’s a very strong man to have made it through this far, so hopefully, he’ll be able to see the two of you get married.

Sending prayers and hugs your way. Hang in there. Cancer is a tough thing to deal with, especially when it afflicts family.

I thought it was very touching when you said “I”d be proud to have him as my FIL”. Be sure to let him know that!

Thanks to everyone! It really means a lot to know that so many thoughts and prayers are headed his way from all over the country. He totally deserves them! He is tough and he’s a fighter and I’m hoping to hear some good news soon. It’s just that he’s usually optimistic, so to hear otherwise is really hard.
It’s funny, too – my mom added FI’s dad as a friend on facebook (they’ve never met, haha) and one of the first things she said when I called to tell her we were engaged – after she squealed in my ear – was that she was excited to meet FI’s dad! So I’m hoping we’re still going to make that happen!
I’m noticing that I’m coming into the age where people start losing their parents. I’ve had a few close friends my age deal with this over the past couple of years – sometimes it’s lifestyle related but cancer doesn’t seem to discriminate much. I very much worry about and appreciate my parents (and my 83 year old grandma who is in good enough health to still be able to walk her hyperactive dog every day!)
Back to work…all the love is helping me hang today (just got the email this morning)…so thanks!

I’m so sorry. It must mean so much for your Fiance to have you and his father to know that you are there to support him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all to find strength in such a difficult time.

I’m so so sorry for you and your Fiance. I will send lots of good thoughts your way. I hope you tell your Future Father-In-Law what you told us about how you feel about him–I’m sure it would mean a lot to him! ((HUGS))

Father in the name of Jesus! I am asking you to come by right now and bless PhatKat811’s future father-in-law. Touch his body, his mind, and soul. You Lord are the one that can give him the strength and healing in his body. I believe you can do all things and I am claiming VICTORY In JESUS NAME AMEN!

My thoughts and prayers go out to your Father-In-Law, your Fiance, you, and everyone else affected by this. Cancer is really hard to deal with.
You might want to have your Fiance get in touch with his brother to see if he can come home. The family advocacy group attached to his brothers service should be able to help.
