    This is not about my friend but my best friend which is my dad.

    When we younger we used to fear my dad very patriacal kami whatever decision we make must be approved firt by my dad. from what course to take in college to what type of car major factor ang decision nya even to the renovation sa lilipatan kung bahay majrity ng decision siya.

    At a very young age together with my two older sister and my younger brothers we would do summer job to the factory. Walang gimik or summer na hindi kami nagtratrabaho. Imagine that at ang early age of 15 and 13 nagawa namin yung plumbing system ng bahay namin na sinusupervise lang nya kami. In short i learned alot from him than in my practical class in school. One time he made my school project the AC/DC converter i got a grade of 100. Jack of all trade and dad ko he was an electrical engineer graduate he knows almost everything plus he has a photographic memory. Like any father and son relationship hindi naman laging smooth ang relationship sometimes we would differ in opinions or kahit sa bahay na pagagalitan ka pa sa nangyari sa office inisip ko na lang na concern siya dahil half his life he devoted in the company at ayaw nya na mapabayaan.

    Four or five years ago we came into a cross road when he complained of chest pain. I brought him to the ER then they give him medicine for the pain. The next day he went to his doctor and he was advise to do some series of test. the results were he needed an immediate quadruple bypass. He passed the procedure with flying colors for close to one month my home was st. lukes hospital.

    now we are again in crossroad last thursday we ad him checked for executive check-up dahil biglang pumayat at anhihirapan maglakad. We were thinking that na stress siya becuase my niece was still in the hopsital three month after she was born. Even our family doctor was shocked when he saw my dad because my dad regularly goes to the hospital for check-ups malusog naman.

    Blood testing was done, 2d echo as advice of his cardiologist, x-ray wala naman makita perferct health sabi nga wala lang ganang kumain. Then sunday he undergo a ultra sound for his stomach then nakita na yung right kidney may parang mass na nakapatong hindi sure kung ano pero may inkling na yung doctor kailangan lang ng confirmation through ct scan.

    I was there when he undergo ct scan there i saw in screen ho big is the mass i ask the techinician ano yung deadma lang siya i asked him what time can we get the result sabi afternoon pa so sabi ko sa mom ko uwi muna ako kasi maglilinis pa ako ng room at matutulog muna ako.

    Then suddenly parang may gumising sa akin. Bumaba ako sa room ko papunta sa dining area i saw my sister crying on the phone while talking to my uncle sabi nga daw ng doctor na cancer yun at nasa stage 4 kumlat na raw sa lungs at bones yung cancer cells.

    Upto now my dad does not know that he has cancer and was given 3-4 months na lang but deep inside i know that he has inclination na matindi yung sakit. Even though he does not manifest physical pain. According to the doctors malabo na ang chances ng dad ko given his age of 76 medyo frail na dahil pumayat baka lalo lang mapadali kung bubuksan pa.

    I tried to be strong infront of my dad and everybody else in my family isip ko lahat kami masyadong emotional lalong walang mangyayari sa amin. pero deep inside ang hirap pala im praying na hindi na siya masaktan pa bago kunin ni lord.

    Im not a religious person but in situation like this isa lang naman ang makakatulong sa atin. PLs pray for my dad.
  2. ganyan talaga ang buhay bro. kanya-kanyang panahon lang yan, kung oras mo na talaga oras muna.
    just be thankfull to God that your Dad had spent fully his borrowed life time in this earth that we are all temporarily leaving. And your right, praying will be a good start lalo na sinabi mo na dika religious na person.
    It might be a wake-up call for you and your family to give more time with each other(praying) than trying to figure out how to expand your business or how to make more money out of it.
    i dasal mo nalang kapatid na kung kunin man ni Lord ang tatay mo, he will let him leave in peace and not in pain.
    Don't you worry bro, your intensions will be added in my prayers kapatid.

    Very true words, Eric.

    Wp.22, prayers tonight for your Dad. Seems you learned a lot from the man. Make the remaining months count. My wife's Dad is now in the hospital battling brain cancer which metastasized from his bout with lung cancer two years prior.

    God bless.

    I know how you feel, my dad also died of cancer(lung), he died in the States. Looking back, nagsisisi talaga ako dahil nung kabataan ko, rebelde ako at nagdaan ang panahon na hindi ko man lang nasabi sa kanya na mahal ko siya bago sila nagpunta ng US. Kaya, kung may pagkakataon, yakapin mo siya at sabihin mo na mahal na mahal mo siya habang siya ay nabubuhay pa.

    Prayers to you and yours.

    This is a difficult time for you but I know how you feel.
    My late father and I both have strong personalities and stubborn natures and have always been at odds ever since I was a teen. We've frequently been at loggerheads with the decisions I've made while growing up but we usually just agree to disagree. The only time I got closer to him was when I decided to practice here in his province. Things were okay but we were always careful not to step on each others toes and medyo ilag pa rin sa isa't isa.
    Four years ago at age 56, he suffered from a massive stroke that lead to his death a few days later, I wasn't even able to say goodbye as he was comatose the whole time leading up to the time he expired.

    Make the most of the time he has left and tell him how much you love him and how much you appreciate everything he's done for you and your family. Make him comfortable and be thankful that God gave you this time. Be strong bro.

    prayers for you and for your family. be strong bro.
    maybe its also a good idea if you let him know what is his situation.
    mas maluwag kasi ang kalooban ng bawat isa kung matatanggap natin ang katotohanan sa una mahirap denial stage pero wala tayong magagawa kung yun ang kagustuhan ng ating Diyos na lumikha. at pwede rin nyang gawing 4 years ang sinabi ng doktor na 4 months. miracles happen. God bless.
