Daughter Moves Wedding Up 5 Months And Gets Married In Hospital After Dad Is Given Weeks To Live
Description
"This was one of the best moments of my life. This man has raised me since I was 3 years old and now I get the chance to be there for him. My Dad was diagnosed with leukemia in February of this year. He has been in and out of the hospital, and on several medications and chemo treatments, yet nothing has seemed to work in his favor. My Dad has no immune system because of the cancer and an infection has almost completely filled his right lung. Doctors believe that in the next few weeks my Dad will no longer be able to breathe and have only given a few weeks to live because of his air quality in his lungs.

My new husband had proposed to me earlier this year and we were planning a big wedding for next April. Given the news of my father's life expectancy (and with the help of an AMAZING nurse team) we were able to have a surprise wedding for my Dad so he could attend. The nurse team kept the wedding a secret from my Dad so this whole day was a surprise to him. He thought I was going to Las Vegas to get married (no idea why he thought that lol)! it was a such a beautiful day. The doctors are now ready to place my father on hospice but he still has the will, the spunk and the humor to be completely alive.

We have both dreamed of him walking me down the aisle to my groom and that moment finally happened. This was truly best day of my life! Dad, I love you more than you know. and I am going to be by your side for every step of this process."

This touched my heart in a way I can't describe. There is so much more about this young lady that is so incredible. Her total devotion to her dad is unwavering, without a doubt. She is a kind, caring, strong, selfless, thoughtful, all around GOOD PERSON! CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN!  And I feel blessed to have been a part of it all. ❤❤

Thinking about a fond remembrance of my dad during this time, I can see why she moved her wedding up so that her father can be present. Having her dad present will always bring a smile to her face. I need tissues right now...bless you and your new marriage. Praying for your father.
