Update... Thank you all.


Recommended Posts

Hi All.

I am a new member to this board. It has given me great comfort reading everyones posts knowing that they have the same common cause.

I lost my father today. It was a little over two months since he was first diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer and mets to the brain. I week after his 10th treatment, he had a rapid decline. My father was hospitalized since January 5th and then was moved to a skilled nursing facility on February 1st. He was in the facility for one week before he passed on.

We knew his condition was grave when we moved him last week. Reading the book, "Crossing the creek" was so instrumental in my comfort. Thank you Janet for sending me the book.

My father waited till my sister showed up to be with him today. Three of my four siblings were with him when he passed. He knew my sister was there when she touched him. His whole breathing changed and then he peacefully passed.

Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement.

Hopefully some day there will be an actual cure.

My prayers go out to all of you!

Dad - I love you and will miss you.

Christopher, I am so sorry for your loss, I too lost my Dad 11 days ago. It is very hard to be here in this section of the message board - I want to be one of the ones sharing encouragement and hope on how my loved one is beating the odds.....but I can't. I am so glad that your father didn't have an extended period of suffering and that he was surrounded by those who loved him when he passed. We must find a cure for this disease - it is so devastating, so cruel, and so scary.

Thank you for your prayers as well, we all need them. This is so hard.......I don't want to let go---not ready :cry::cry:

Take care Christopher, I know what you are going through. My thoughts are with you and everyone suffering because of this miserable disease.
