my wonderful dad was so strong

by ellyn

In 2007 my dad was diagnosed with mesothelioma ( lung cancer caused bu asbestos) he had chemo and radiotherapy were he stayed strong he then had an operation to remove hos plura. He went doenhil after the op ended in icu and Incredibly after organ failure and 3 strokes my amazing dad pushed through and made it home! After 6 months recovered so well and got back to work everything was fine unroll February 2011, when the doctors said it had come back he had more chemo and radio and everything seemed like it was going well. Apart from the fact he was in agony that could not be explained. His abdomen wad filled with fluid and in September had it drained a few days before I wad off in holiday with my boyfriend . Dad came out the day before I left. I was texting my family throughout the holiday but wasn't getting any replies a week into the holiday I got a call .. dad was in a awful way, I had to get back to England I was home in 12 house from the call. He was so I'll he passed within ten says if Me being home my poor dad was riddled with cancer . He was such a wonderful man always putting me and my sisters and mum before anything working for money to give is what er wanted he truly was an incredible man in every way and so so strong. And its nearly been 4 months now but I miss him more and more everyday!! I know this is long but it's my dad's battle with that awful disease cancer!
