So, many of you know that my dad was diagnosed with a rare lung cancer about 4 years ago. He has overcome the "odds" and we have been blessed to have him continue to be a part of our lives these last few years. My dad's health has taken a turn for the worse and he is now in the "pallative care" phase of treatment. This basically means that they will not seek any further treatments to try to control the cancer, but will just focus on managing his pain and keeping him comfortable. For those of you who may be interested in keeping updated on what is going on with my dad, we have started a blog for him at www.veldonsblog.blogspot.com.
Thanks to all of you who have expressed concern and offered prayers in behalf of our family. We are so blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family members to support us!
My dad was diagnosed with cancer about a month before Kirtis and I got married. I love this picture of me with Dad on my wedding day. (Incidently, the same picture on my dad's blog-- it brought back some memories for me!) Can't you just see the sparkle in his eyes?
