    The final update on this thread, though I'll try to be more active in other threads and chime in when I can!
    Dad passed yesterday morning around 8:30AM. He was 61. It was very peaceful and my mom was holding his hand the whole time. We'll all miss him so much.
    No funeral or anything to worry about, just doing a simple cremation. We'll have a big Celebration of Life party sometime over the summer. 
    I look forward to keeping tabs on all cancer research developments: I can't wait for a cure.
    Lots of love,

    Hi everyone. Just another update.
    Dad is on his final days. I flew home to Indiana and have been helping out my mom. After his stay in the hospital, he had a few good weeks, and for that I am very thankful. 
    I got here last Saturday and he has been deteriorating fast. We are doing home hospice and it's nice he could stay where he is comfortable. He is mostly sedated to keep him from getting scared/sad/confused/agitated, but he has a few lucid moments where we can still see he's in there. We let him know how much we love him and I read him messages from his friends. His buddies from his guitar club called and played for him over speakerphone - it really made him smile.
    Thanks to everyone here at Lungevity for all of the support, love, information, and above all - hope! Not sure what I would've done without you guys. 
    I'll pop back in regulaly and keep tabs on everyone and offer advice to other caretakers when I can. 
    It makes me happy that cancer treatment is moving so fast and that new options are available each day. I can't wait to see what the future holds and look forward to the day no one needs to worry about cancer.
    Best,

    I’m sorry to hear this.  This is a difficult time, one I went through myself with my father.  I hope your father finds comfort and peace in the days to come.  At some point you will find the same as well.

    Marcie,
    Thank you for your kind words.  I am sorry all the recent advances in lung cancer treatment have not improved your father's condition.
    For what it is worth, you are, in my opinion, doing all the right things: home hospice, sedation level, interaction during lucid moments, and spending quality time with your father.  
    I pray for peace for you and your family.
    Stay the course.
