Yes. Thankfully my brothers wife does hospice care so navigating should be a little easier on us. 💋

Just got the results. Cancer is back. Several lemon sized tumors on kidneys and abdomen. Inoperable. We had started discussing hospice and right now he’s not in any pain. Lung disease is really kicking his ass. He showed me where all the important papers are and I am holding together for him. Of course I’ll break down when I head home. I live an hour away. Keeping up with my weekly visits for now. Will increase as necessary. Just want him To be comfortable. He finally got groceries delivered. So the stubbornness is wearing off. TTFN. Thanks for reading 💋

My dad was diagnosed with Stage III colorectal cancer last December. On top of this, he also has Non-Specific Interstial Pneumonia (lung disease). He went thru about half of the recommended chemo as the side effects were awful. He is going in for a PET scan on the 27th of December as his CEA levels were about 150. He is on supplemental oxygen and feels tethered to his machine. I was able to get a machine delivered to my house over Thanksgiving and he was able to come out for a night. Hoping he feels well enough to come out at Christmas. I feel so lost. I live an hour away and try to help him as best I can and keep it together. He knows its terminal and we don't talk much about it. I just kind of follow his lead. I've been trying to encourage him to get his groceries delivered (He fell trying to carry everything in to the house from the car). He's very stubborn. It's the little things we take for granted. I guess I am just trying to keep from falling apart. My brother helps when he can but has 7 kids. Ok, I'm done. Just needed a place to unload.
