Early Christmas Present

It's been 5 months since my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer due to smoking cigarettes. It was actually just a day before his 69th birthday. It was one of the most devastating news for the family. We all felt lost and lots of questions unanswered. So, he went through chemotherapy treatment although his brothers and sisters in Philippines disagree and was not happy of the decision mainly because of lack of knowledge and awareness of the advancement in Medical field in U.S. but we still went on and it was all my Dads decision. I saw him suffered the pain and agony of the treatment and it was not easy to not able to help him. All I know is he is trying and he promised he will not give up but it is all up to the Lord. After several medical appointments upon appointments and the last CT scan turned out to be greatest news. Although it may not have cured the lung cancer at his late stage but the treatment put the cancer growth on remission. God is really GreaT! Thank God for my Dad and the chance to be with us. This is also my way to say thank you to my family and friends who helped and prayed for my Dads health.
