I admired my father-in-law. Although he has the attitude of an easy going person, you could see how disciplined he is. You could actually see that his love for his family and children, as well as their dog, is one that is never-ending, regardless he was diagnosed with mesothelioma by mesothelioma specialists. It was after we had a motorcycle ride with my boyfriend, now husband, that I met my father-in-law.
It was when we got to the garage that I get the chance to meet his father. You could actually see that the details and craftsmanship of the Harley Davidson jacket is what made me wear the jacket given to me by my husband. I remember that my father-in-law was sitting on a chair as we browsed through an auto magazine, eating his saltine crackers and jelly.
His father right away greeted me in a flirty manner and said to his son that I could take jokes. Without hesitation, I replied introducing my name, “Sarah”, as I displayed an honest smile. Thing is that I did not find it offending in some way but rather, I remembered my grandfather as they share the very same attitude. 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.
Time has passed and we were 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. Stopping from time to time to catch his breath is what slowed him down as my mother in law called him while I set the table.
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. It is true that firefighters really need to seek out professional mesothelioma specialists to ensure they are checked and diagnosed 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. However, it was already too late when he decided to seek help from mesothelioma specialists and died 4 months shortly. His ashes was spread in Florida Keys, where he really was at his happiest.
