Unhappy My dad is in surgery now for cancer in the jaw

My dad is in surgery this morning for cancer in his jaw. This is a re occourance from 9 years ago. they are removing 2 inches of his jaw bone and replacing it with part of his thigh bone. He will also need a trachiatomy(?) for breathing and a feeding tube placed in his stomach. I am very scared that he wont make it!

since the last occourance 9 years ago he has had to have his teath and half of his jaw replaced because of the affects of the radiation. He has also had 2 strokes and now cannot visually register any thing to the left of him.

It just seems to me that there should be a point that it all ends. Why is it all happening to us. what did my daddy do to deserve this????

Sorry I just needed to vent a little.

I really hope he makes it through. I am only 24, i'm not ready to lose a parent.
I just got married 2 weeks ago and he couldn't be there, he has to pull through , he hasn't even seen the pictrures yet!!

daddysbum: I'm so very very sorry to hear about your dad. I'm sure that he will pull through the sugrey, if all else just to see your wedding pictures. This is a very good place to come and ask questions or just to vent... We all do it. Take care and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

T.
