I’m so lost, but I feel I can post this here since I am pretty much anonymous and have no friends or family on this board.
I’ve posted many times about how my father got ordained just so he could marry Fiance and I. I was so excited and it was so meaningful to me.
Now it looks like that’s not going to happen. He had surgery last week to remove the rest of the cancer and it went well. And then infection set in. We had the option to do another surgery, but he is so weak now that he only had a small chance to survive it and if he did, his quality of life would go to shit. The infection is killing him and all we can do is watch. The doctors say he will go pretty quickly barring a huge miracle.
But I belive in miracles, and while I refer to myself as an atheist, I do believe in the power of prayer, if for no other reason than you have a large group of people projecting positve energy to one source.
I love my Daddy so much! He’s always been the funniest and wittiest man I know. So without being all needy and making it seem like I am seeking attention, PLEASE PRAY FOR MY DADDY TO GET BETTER AND MAKE A MIRACULOUS TURNAROUND. He is not even 60 yet and still has a lot to accomplish in this life. His name is James Addy. He is an ER nurse and has given so much of himself. Please help me.

So if this comes off insensitive you can kick me, but I was just thinking could he possibly marry you and your fi before he gets too bad? It may be a nice memory you have with him and then you could still do your wedding as planned.

I’m so sorry to hear about your father, Paigey. 🙁 You’re right, though… miracles do happen. There are drastic turns for the better all the time. Spend as much time w/him as possible & hopefully, he’ll surprise the doctors & improve.
My thoughts will be w/you. Stay strong!
P.S. Is your family considering taking a chance w/the 2nd surgery?

I’m really sorry you’re going through this and I’ll be praying for you and your father. Don’t give up hope because miracles do happen. The Bible speaks about a “peace that surpasses understanding”. I pray that you and your family will know that peace in this very difficult time.

*speechless*………………i don’t pray, but i am sending all the positive vibes in me.
I agree with Kate (and you can kick me too). We lost the wonderful woman who would be my mother-in-law in March and we regret not having married before she died..we thought she would be here to see us married..alas, it was too late..so maybe it won’t be for you? I am sorry if i am hurting you, but maybe it could comfort you a little, case the worst happens (hopefully not!!)

I’m so sorry. I, too, am very close to my dad, and I can’t imagine how you’re feeling. You and your family will be in my thoughts, I hope a miracle does happen.

You’re in my thoughts and prayers. I lost my daddy when I was 12, and I do not wish that on ANYONE! Positive energy works, just stay with him and keep talking to him. Make sure to tell HIM everything you have just told us about how much you love him.

I like the ideas of you getting married in front of your dad. From the sound of it, he isn’t well enough to say all of the words himself (is he conscious and awake or is he sedated with medication?). Maybe you could get someone into the hospital to marry you two in front of him and if he is well enough he could say the part, “do you take this woman….”.
I’m so sorry to hear about what you are going through. I’m sending positive thoughts your way!!!!!
