A father’s last wish came true last Friday.
A young couple got married at Baton Rouge General last weekend. Instead of the late July wedding they had planned, Julia and her fiancé Michael wanted to get married as soon as possible. Danny, Julia’s dad, was in the hospital facing a tough prognosis, and seeing her walk down the aisle was never in question. Doctors told him he has 2-4 weeks left to live.
Unconventional, yes, but with a little help from staff around the hospital, Julia and Michael tied the knot on Sunday, June 30, celebrating with close family and friends afterward in the hospital atrium.
He’s at his home now, surrounded by his amazing family, feeling all the love.
