    My dad's not doing well

    Just off the phone with my mom. For the last week my dads been going downhill. He's not eating, has no energy, has admitted that he's dying. He's not ready to go into the hospital yet. Mom says she's managing ok for now. Not sure if its the cancer or his aortic anuerism that's causing this. They see the doctor next Tuesday. Could use some good thoughts for them. Thanks.

    Hugs and prayers.

    I know things have been tough between you and them. I hope that your dad passes peacefully. Glad your mom is managing ok.

    Many hugs to you.

    Prayers and hugs and love for your parents and you, Gayle.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.

    This sounds like time to contact hospice, if that is what your folks plan to do. They will be able to reassure your mom that things on track. Prayers for all of you from RI.
