Back in Las Vegas Criss came and got me from the hospital. "Well the jig is up with my brother they figured it out about you" he stated as we drove home. "Your brothers are good I'll give them that"I remarked. "I had to tell Felix too he was ready to suspend me or something with all the cloak and dragger rountine"Criss admitted. I laughed a little as we pulled up. When I got out my mother was waiting for us with Nathan. When I got out Nathan saw me and ran as I picked him up. "Oh I missed you so much baby" giving him a kiss. He smiled and gave me one too. "Come on Antonia you need to rest" my mother stated. We walked in and I sat on the couch with Nathan next to me. "Criss can you help me with something in the kitchen for a minute"she asked. "Sure" and went to the kitchen. "I didn't want to say this infront of Antonia but I got a call from Johnny Dennis is on his way to Las Vegas"she told Criss. Criss sighed.
"Antonia isn't going to like this" as Criss came out. "What's going on Criss my mother making you her guinea pig with her cooking"I joked. "No I've got some news that you may not like. Your uncle called your father is coming for a visit"Criss stated. I felt ready to hide under a rock. "How am I going to explain to my father about my cancer and why I've kept this from him for this long" I asked as tears of worry fell down my face. "Antonia relax take a breath we'll explain it to him but don't get yourself in a tisty all right" Criss stated. I took a breath and Criss gave me a hug. When my father finally landed in Las Vegas Criss picked him up. "How was the flight?" Criss inquired as they walked to the car. "Good Criss I'm sorry to do this to you considering what's going on I just needed to see my little girl" he replied.
"Dennis it's all right just remember Antonia doesn't know that you know about the cancer because if she finds out you and I are going to be facing a pretty ticked off woman". My father nodded as they left. At the house I was outside with my mother. "Antonia don't worry your father is going to understand"she assured me. "Mom you don't know what dad put me through when I started to date Criss or when I had Nathan. I just don't want dad to turn into that person again" I replied biting my nails. "Antonia your father can't blame Christopher for you getting cancer now relax". "Antonia daddy's here" he called out. My mother came in as he was looking at Verdia. "She's adorable reminds me of when Antonia was my little baby principessa" (princess in Italian). "When I was delivering her that's what hit me the day Antonia was born" she remarked. "Yea I remember we were at the bakery and you were filling some cannolis when your water broke. I think Johnny even slipped in it so I had to bring you and him to the hospital"my father remembered. "And you fainting as Antonia was being born. You fell like a redwood tree-TIMBER" as my father chuckled.
"Now I know where Criss got it from" I said coming in with a bandana on my head. "Criss why don't we go see what Nathan is doing upstairs in the playroom"my mother suggested and they left. My father looked like his jaw was on the floor. "You all right daddy?"I asked as we sat down. "I'm just in shock what happened you just don't look like my Antonia. You've lost so much weight and your hair where's your long brown hair that was down to the middle of your back". "I gave it to chairty. Daddy there's something I need to tell you and I want you to know I was going to tell you about this"I stated. "What that your mother lives with you and Criss I don't care it's nice to see your mother considering,". Tears started to fall down my face. "Tony don't cry what's wrong" as he wiped the tears away. "I've got Leukemia" I remarked. My father was speechless. "Antonia I have a confession to make and I don't want you to be mad at me or your husband, but I've known about your diagnosis for two months now. The reason I came down here was that I felt so helpless knowing my only child is fighting a disease that took your husband's father". I gave my father a hug as tears fell down both our faces. Criss and my mom came down with Nathan and Zoey.
"You guys all right?" Natilee asked. I got up and gave my husband a kiss. "Thank you for going behind my back and telling my father about the cancer" I stated. "So I won't be needing a room at The Luxor or worse sleeping in my office on that fold out bed" he asked smiling. "No I'd probably do that same if the tables were turn"I said. "Now that's done can I hold one of my new grandbabies?"my father asked. "Here you go Dennis meet your granddaughter Zoey". My mother gave him Zoey as I put Nathan next to his grandfather. Then Nathan put his hand out and moved it back and forth. "Antonia what is he saying?" my father asked. "It's the sign for Grandpa" Criss replied. "That's right Nathan I am your grandpa"
