Sarah’s Thanks to Her Father-in-Law

Truth be told, I admired my father-in-law. Although he has the attitude of an easy going person, you could see how disciplined he is. 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. I met him when my husband and I arrived from a motorcycle ride.

It was when we got to the garage that I get the chance to meet his father. I had to wear a jacket I don’t like but little did I know I had admired the craftsmanship of the Harley Davidson jacket my husband got for me. 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. Although he was diagnosed with mesothelioma after seeing mesothelioma specialists, I could say that things could have changed.

Time has passed and we were blessed with 2 kids. Whenever we get to visit their house, he is always there doing the same thing, reading a magazine as he enjoys a snack beside him. I have noticed and seen these little changes when he does not usually do the things he regularly do. He does not have the same snacks beside him as he reads through a magazine, which was a bit 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.

The problem goes on as I remember my friend’s father had the same issues. They have gone to a number of specialists and found his father was positive for mesothelioma. The gears that the firefighters wear back in the days actually were made with asbestos fiber and asbestos. That gave me the hint that firefighters really need to seek out and work with mesothelioma specialists to be treated accordingly.

We tried to convince my father-in-law and it took a lot of tries and convincing before we sought the expertise of mesothelioma specialists. Although we had sought help from mesothelioma specialists, it was too late as my father-in-law died 4 months short after the diagnosis. My father in law died and had his ashes spread in Florida Keys, where he was his happiest.
