My Dear Father in Law

This post is to ask for prayers for my Father in Law. Well, Don and I aren't married, but I still count him as my father in law. He is such a sweetheart and is going thru some really tough times with cancer. He started out with Prostate cancer a few years ago, and that is all gone, but in December a few days before Christmas we found out that he has a new cancer and it spread like wild fires thru all his body. It is in his hips, spine, kidneys, liver and skull. In his bones as well. He started Chemo, but it is killing him faster I think. He has had two treatments and the last one he had an allergic reaction to. He had to have a blood transfusion the week before the second treatment, and they believe that is what caused the allergic reaction. He is stubborn and set in his ways and tired of the poking and prodding that they do at the hospital. he is in pain and not really able to sleep well. the medications make him goofy at times and we are just trying to spend as much time as possible with him. it is very hard to see him this way when 2 months ago he was still working as a handy man at an apt. complex at the age of 80. he will be 81 in March. We are not sure if he will make it to his birthday. Hopeful though. Please keep him in your prayers.
