My Story

Great Family man worked hard as a auto mechanic( since he was just a child) to provide a humble living for his 5 children and wife. Smallest things made him the happiest man. His family. Loved to laugh (joker). My father was born in Palermo Sicily January 27, 1946. He came from a family of 8, 4 brother 4 sisters. My father loved each and everyone of his siblings. My father met my mother when he was 21 and she was 17 she got pregnant and married very quickly. They came to America to provide a better life for their children. They came here with no money but my dad managed to sacrifice him self day in and day out to save enough money to buy his family a home NOT a house but a Home. He took such pride in everything.... his children, wife and his humble achivement. Mind you my father could not speak a word of english and acheived his goal.  My father always loved his home country always said he was going back .

What can you possible say about a man who always fought for his family. A man who scarficed himself to work  so he can provide for his family. A man who fell in love with his wife the minute he layed his eyes on her. A man who taught his children from right to wrong. A man who forgives those who he loves. A man who has such an unbelievable personality. A man who lights up a room with his smile. A man who loves to bother you because he wants to see you smile. A man who loves his children deeply and unconditonal. A man who loved his life before being introduced to such a vicious diease.

Papa your all that and more!!!

My father found out 6 yrs ago that he had MDS due to his line of work.  My mother was in the hospital getting her non-cancerous tumors removed. My dad was nervous and decided to drive my sister home. In the mist of that my dad got into a car accident and was admitted in the ER. He was released after being told everything was Okay. He decided to go back upstairs to visit my mother while doing so he became short of breath and began to take his belt off and dropped to the floor. We all panic! My dad ended up back in the ER were he was released again Doctors stating he was okay. The third time around it was just my dad and I and we were in the waiting area waiting for my mother in the meantime I realized his lips were dark and he turned pale white and started to unbuckle his pants again and threw himself on the floor. This time around I freaked out on the Doctors and told them to run All TEST ON HIM. Thats when we were told my father had MDS preleukemia but he is okay because we caught it in time and he was just in the beginning stages. My father began getting blood transfusion at least once a month then twice then 3x's then as frequent as 3x's a week. My dad's doctor told him his body was beginning to reject these infusions and he should consider getting a bone marrow transplant and my father agreed he didnt want to live his life like that anymore he was depressed.For many reasons 1. not  being able to work 2. depressed he couldn't go back to his country. And because of these reasons he agreed with the transplant. My dad then asked his sibling to get tested and they all did except the youngest sister the test results came back and my Uncle who is older then my dad was a 90% match. My dad went through with his transplant and everything was going perfect were they released him after 1 month. I was upset with the doctors because I didn't feel it was enough time I felt he needed to stay under doctor  supervision longer but they told me NO he is okay to go home. They released him and told us not to have him eat certain foods and he can not leave the house without a mask and can not be around children or pets. We agreed and my father did also But just a couple of weeks home he fell into more depression and it killed me seeing him like that. My father was submitted back into the hosiptal in feb with a high fever and they tested his bone marrow only to find out his body was fighting his brothers stem cells and his platelets were low and his white blood cells and every cell you can possible think of were ALL low. They sent my father home again with different med's and self injections to boost his counts and he was home for about 2 weeks till we resubmitted him this time everything fell apart He ended up in the ICU unit and we were scared. But still didnt think he would pass away. The 3 days my dad was in the hospital my father told me things I never knew and told me how proud he was and I didn't think anything of it till now. (I NEVER THought GOD WAS TAKING HIM FROM ME) Deep down my father knew he was leaving us and he was Scared and Now I am because I want to know my father is happy and there isnt a soul on this earth that could convince me he is I want to know for a fact and I won't till my day comes.... Till then Papa we will meet again I LOVE YOU!!! MISS YOU 

I LOVE YOU
TIAMO PAPA

Love you Dieye
