My dad is 57 years old. He was diagnosed with NSCLC IV in October 2001. In November he had to have a pin put in his left leg. He took chemo and radiation. In May 2001 he had to have his rotor cup down to the elbow replaced with a steel shoulder and rod. He is now doing radiation on his shoulder and arm. He had scans ran last week and they found a tumor in between his lung and spine. It's not attached to anything at this time. They also discovered a spot on his liver. He is scheduled for chemo on the 28th of August. He is very weak and light headed alot. He keeps asking if this is the way it will be until the end. I don't know what to say to him. He is a believer and so is our family. He says he's not afraid to die he just wonders what it will be like at the end. Anyone with suggestions on how to help with his questions would be appreciated.
