Hi there. My Dad has had chemo only 3 times. He has been diagnosed with stage IV non-small cell lung and lymph node cancer. My family all lives in separate towns all over Florida and we try to go home as much as possible to help my Mom out. My Dad is extremely stubborn and has lost so much weight he is now down to 128 lbs. and the Dr. says he cannot have chemo( the super strong version he was getting) anymore. He is scheduled for a blood transfusion this Tues. He mad a comment to me on the phone just this afternoon that "the old man is just to far gone" and I am at my emotional end trying to deal with this. Can anyone give me some advise or does anyone else have a stubborn 60 year old ex-military Dad...and how to help his spirits? My family is in a place of limbo...and none of us know what to do or feel. This is such an ugly thing for anyone to have to go through, and my heart goes out to everyone who is stuck in this boat!
