This morning my boyfriend left to bring his father up to Orlando for a few days for some doctors stuff. His father was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, and although we think it was diagnosed early enough, we’ll find out for sure.
They’re relationship has a little bit on the rocks on and off the past several years. Not becoming a doctor, dating me (I’m religious and not of the same ethnic background), spending too much money (all stuff related to the move), not earning enough money (personally, I think he is underpaid for what he does and his qualifications), not living at home, working to hard etc. All sorts of things. This has brought them back together a bit, but all the past stuff/issues still hurts. At the very least my boyfriend thinks his parents are coming around to accepting me, which is a plus.
I hope more than anything he’ll be okay, but I still fear in the back of my mind he won’t. I’ve lost a lot of family members to cancer, and I don’t want that to happen to him. I don’t want to see this man go through it. He’s a doctor too, a pediatrician specifically. I have to keep my fears to myself though, and be strong for my boyfriend, because he needs to be strong for his dad.
So in the mean time, I’m just going to clean and organize our apartment so he won’t be stressed out when he returns. And possibly do a little crafting before work today.
Pray for him please?
