- Wedding: June 2014
First I am extremely close to all my family on my father’s side. See everyone on every holiday no matter where that person is, and would do anything for anyone in this family.
My uncle who has had health issuse since he was young(kidney cancer, bladder cancer, along with a few other things. and right now he only has 1/3 of a kidney left that has had a tumor on it for several years now)
He went for his normal check up when they found that his cancer of the bladder came back so they will have to do surgery to remove it but to add to it the tumor on his kidney has started to grow again so they have to also remove that but cannot remove anymore of his kidney. So right after he heals enough from the bladder surgery he has to go right into another surgery.
My uncle is an amazing guy and has done so much with his life, he was the mayor of a small city in Michigan he was the police commissioner of Warren for several years, and did so much between traveling and everything.
I know this probably sounds selfish and im sorry if it does, but everytime something starts going good or something wonderful is going to happen it always takes sometype of turn for the worse, and Im not sure how much more i can take. I watched my childhood house burn down, in Oct of 2007. Well, my parents got out of debt, they both stopped smoking and we were planning a wonderful vacation to go to disney world. but in 2008 it all turned. Jan 23 i lost my mother, then two weeks after that my best friend mother who was like a 2nd mother to me was murdered, a family friend house burnt down and killed their 8 year old son who i used to watch and consider a little brother, then my aunt past from breast cancer(which honestly im glad she wasnt in anymore pain and everything).
Now I’m getting married next year to the most amazing guy and stuck with me through all of this and still is but now with the thought of my uncle Im just stuck and trying not to cry.
Again, sorry for being selfish and everything, i guess i just needed to vent some.
