i havent wrote about this, but a few months back my dad went to dentist and they found a few "grey" spot on his gums. they scared us when they said they think its cancer, and it was so far into the bone my dad was put on a liquid diet right away and was told if he bite down on something in the wrong way that his jaw would break. so my dad has not been eating solid food for a few weeks now and is down to the size he was when he was a senior in highschool. he lost alot of weight. after they did the biopsy they said it was just a bad cyst, and stay on liquid diet due to the poor condition of the jaw bone.
today, in about an hour or so he is getting surgery to correct this....they have to cut the outside of his face open, pull it back so his mandible , bottom jaw, is exposed, they will take his bone out and put in cadiver (sp??) bone and a metal plate. and remove the rest of his teeth. he will be under for 3 or 4 hours and im very scared for this.
my dad does have a heart problem, and im just really scared for him to be under that long......
please say some prayers for my dad that he gets through this surgery safely and everything goes well.....im freaking out!
oh lord please wrap your arms around my dad and lead him to safety thru this time of need, he needs your support and you strenght. please let everything go well and my dad come out without and problems......
