angsexton Posted May 21, 2007 Share Posted May 21, 2007 Hi everyone. I really wish that I had had this support when I was going through losing my mother to cancer almost three years ago. I felt very alone. I was only 27, had just had my first baby, and was without my mother. It's so amazing that something like this exists. I am now going through this all over again with my father. He is Stage IV NSCLC with mets to his skin, bladder and abdomen. He lives over 500 miles away and it's so hard not being with him every day. He is such a fighter, but I think he is ready to be with my mom again. There is this something different in his voice lately. Not defeat...just fatigue. He was in the hospital for the last 2 weeks and a doctor acutally told him that he was dying from cancer and needed hospice. Why don't they make every doctor take a course in bed-side manner? Thanks for letting me vent. All of you and your loved ones will be in my thoughts and prayers. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
