My 5-year-old's father has cancer. Started about a year ago as testicular, went to abdomen, lungs, brain. Until the last few days, we thought there was hope. He has gone back to MD Andersen & we're told he will probably not come home again. My son has been around his father in between treatments (we are not married), knows he is sick & has had surgeries, but hasn't really been told about cancer and does not know how serious his illness is. We are trying to decide the affect it would have on him to see his Dad in the hospital - if it might be better for him to keep the memories of his Dad at his home instead. (His Dad is waking up only briefly and because of recent seizures, can barely speak.) We would welcome other's opinions. Thank you & God bless each of you.
