My daddy

Shared by Jessica Stafford on June 16, 2016

My daddy was a strong and faithful person . He cherished his family and loved his friends . he would do what he could to help anyone . in 2012 he discovered a knot on his neck . he didn't worry to much due to his wife was having health issues that later to find out were not life threatening. As the days passed in 2013 at the end of the yr he found out his knot was cancer . they said it was lymphoma cancer stage 4 . in Jan of 2014 he went for his first chemo treatnent and also to discover he was being given 6 mths to live . as my dad couldn't bare the news he disnt give up. He got real sick and lost a lot of weight. He didn't eat He wouldn't get out of bed before He started his chemo. He said he was gonna keep fighting . and that he did . he fought hard to keep his health strong. During the chemo he receive a feeding tube . along with home care to change the dressing on his pickline and feeding tube. As the year passed he gained weight back . he started having energy and became more active. He then kept his self busy . doing what he loved. 3 days after starting his chemo He was home and got to meet his newborn grandson. From that day he made a big change . he was strong and face a lot of complications . in 2015 he started to go down hill again. The Drs assumed the cancer moved to his bones . with the cancer already being in his liver stomach and pancreas he didn't know how to deal with it in his bones. Hurting daily. He still pushed to survive . then in the end of 2015 early 2016 the Drs confirmed he did have cancer in his bones . but he wasn't gonna let that push him down he still took every day as it was before spending time with his grandkids and living every min of it . in Feb 2016 the Drs knew he took a turn for the worst. They told him he had 2 days to 2 weeks. As they told him before he wouldn't live past 6 months so dad and the family had hope they were wrong again . and they were . he lived yet again past the time they have him. He says only God knows when my time is up and when it's my time I will go home. Telling me he was saved and he would be ok I was assured my daddy would be my Angel forever. On May 6 2016 my mom called me early that morning and told me dad wasn't doing good he was having trouble breathing . she called hospice and they told her it was time he didn't have but maybe a few he. Me as his daughter always thought it was my mom holding in n that's why he hadn't passed yet. But two days prior I prayed on my knees for God to stop his suffering . take him home let him be free . and sure enough the one holding on was me. My daddy took his last breaths at 5:20 pm that fri evening on May 6th 2016. It was the most heartbreaking moment in my life . but I know God is taking care of him and I know he looks down on me . never take life for granted cause u never know when it time is up. God blessĀ
