Greetings friends and family. I shared last month that my dad has terminal cancer, and then I sort of left you hanging — so here’s a quick update.
Dad continues to decline, but he is one tough guy. His hospice nurse thought he had “less than a week” over a week ago and he still continues to get up and out of bed at least once a day — until today. But it’s early.
My sister, brother and I are taking shifts and doing our best to make sure he’s comfortable and cared for. We are well supported with an almost daily hospice nurse visit and 24/7 phone support.
Dad is very weak and tired, but says he is not in pain.
It seems he has one foot in the afterlife and he goes back and forth between both worlds.
We are taking it day by day and sometimes hour by hour, with our father in the lead.
All is well in this cozy and warm home.
Thank you for your continued love and support.
Marilyn, Joanne, and John
