My name is Beth. My father had his right kidney removed in January and was diagnosed then, on my parents 50th anniversary. What a way to celebrate. My parents live with our family (we have 5 children at home.) About 3 weeks ago my father went on hosopice care. He hasn't eaten anything in over 3 weeks although he does drink water occasionaly. He has lost over 60# since the surgery. I know the end is coming. How can I help him, my mother and the kids? We have him at home and I want him to be there, but I am so stressed out, because I still work a full time job and try to keep the kids going to their activities. Help!! I just need someone to talk to because my mother can't face it. She has also discovered a new sarcoma in her lung that has traveled from her leg.
