    Hello,
    Please bear with me,I'm usually not one to go "air out her laundry" but my dad was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. My dad's health means more to me then anything!! I am having a destination wedding in punta cana DR in 4 1/2 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!, my dad is determined to go ( he had a mass removed from his brain 2 weeks ago and is recovering very well!!), This is all so sudden to us!! everything happen within the last 2 weeks!!! His Doctors gave him the OK to go, and we have 2 Dr's (friends) traveling with us. It's all very overwhelming, it all happen so suddenly!!  I"m concerned  about his strength. He will be having his first chemo treatment on Sept. 26, we leave Oct. 8. I'm soo worried and freaking out!! I offer d to shorten our trip of make other arrangements, but he wants to hear nothing of it!

      I am so sorry for the sudden news! Planning a DW is stressful enough and adding your dad's health to the mix must be so overwhelming. I am praying for you and your dad and hoping that everything turns out great for you!! You are his little girl so he want to see this milestone moment in his life. Sending healing good vibes to your dad and your entire family in this time of need!

      I am really sorry to hear of the diagnosis for your father.  It's never easy when someone is sick, especially your father.  If your dad is anything like my dad, he would never miss the opportunity to see his little girl walk down the aisle and marry to man of her dreams, no matter the situation or how he is feeling.  I hope everything works out for you and no matter what enjoy your vacation and cherish all the amazing memories that will be made on your wedding and trip.

        I am so sorry to hear about your father, that is so hard. I can only imagine how you are feeling and I think I would be the same way (willing to change plans to keep my dad healthy), but I am sure your dad is looking at this as a once and a lifetime thing and it will mean the world to him to see his daughter get married no matter what. All you can do is tell your dad you are there for him and let him know you are completely okay with changing plans but support his decision to go too. I am sorry again that you are going through this and hope everything works out. Praying for you and your family!
