crystleshoe Posted May 10, 2007 Share Posted May 10, 2007 Well my dad is out of the hospital now and staying with me until we see the doctor next Tues. They say it is just pneumonia but he had to come home with oxygen. He is tired and he has aged so much since my moms dx. I just found out that he hasnt been taking his medication the right way since mom got sick( she used to make sure he did).They had been married 50 years and I think hes kinda lost now without her. They should be planning their yearly trip to Maine and taking long weekends together. Dad is getting ready to retire and now he has no one to enjoy it with. Mothers day is coming and I have no mother. There are so many things that she should be here for and she is not here. I am so pissed off that cancer still seems to have such a hold on my life. Not a day goes by that I dont think about it and now with Dad being sick I am so afraid it will be the same thing all over again. My mom should be here to take care of him and she is not, Thats what she did best and now I have to try to do it and I am not as good at it as she was. I know that maybe he would have gotten sick anyway but I cant help but think that its just another nasty side effect of cancer. not only does it suck the life out of the patient but it sucks the life from the people who loved them. I HATE LUNG CANCER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
