How Thankful I Am to Have Met A Person Like My Father-In-Law
Truth be told, I admired my father-in-law. It is true he is easy going but is well disciplined. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma by mesothelioma specialists back then but you could see that he loves his child and family like it was a stream, a never-ending stream. The first time I met him was when my boyfriend, later husband, and I arrived from a motorcycle ride we had.
It was when we got to the garage that I get the chance to meet his father. While I am not the leather jacket type of girl, the detailed craftsmanship of the Harley Davidson jacket is what led me to admire it. I could clearly see that my boyfriend’s father was sitting on a chair, eating his saltine crackers beside him while he was browsing through an auto magazine.
His father right away greeted me in a flirty manner and said to his son that I could take jokes. I introduced myself and told him my name is Sarah as I smiled. However, never did I feel offended since I remembered by grandfather seeing him that way, which, really is not offending in some way. Remembering how important it is and how things would have changed if only we had found mesothelioma specialists earlier, it would not have been such a struggle for my father-in-law.
We got married and was blessed with 2 kids. It is almost a given that I could see him sitting and going through some magazine with a snack beside him to complement his reading. I have noticed and seen these little changes when he does not usually do the things he regularly do. Seeing as how he does not have the snacks beside him is what made me think it is somewhat odd. As my mother-in-law called him out for dinner as I set the table, we could see that he really was slowed down by his frequent stops and pauses to catch his breath.
It was then I remembered that a friend of my shared a story about his father showing the same issue as with my father-in-law. Technically speaking, they have tried a number of specialists but hit a dead end as they found his father to be positive with mesothelioma. Firefighters were highly exposed to asbestos as their gears back then were made by asbestos and asbestos fiber. That gave me the hint that firefighters really need to seek out and work with mesothelioma specialists to be treated accordingly.
It reached ton of tries before I got my father-in-law to seek out mesothelioma specialists. Generally speaking, it was too late for us to sought the expertise of mesothelioma specialists as my father-in-law died months later since diagnosed. His ashes was spread in Florida Keys, where he really was at his happiest.
