My partner is dieing of Liver disease and now my father may have cancer. My father started having breathing problems in January 2004; a few weeks ago he went to the doctor who thought he had Pneumonia and given steroids. The internal med doctor sent him to a pulmonologist who sent him for a CT scan. They found swollen lymph nodes and something in/on his liver. They did a biopsy. Now they are thinking cancer metastasized in his liver and TB. I am scared and do not know what to do. I can not lose my only living parent and my partner of over 10 years at the same time. She was diagnosed 3 years ago and does not have much longer as she is not a transplant candidate. I am not strong enough. I put on a strong face for them, but it hurts so much and if I lose them I will be without anyone to talk to about this. I lost my mother 8 years ago suddenly of a heart attack and my grandmother over 2 years ago to a car accident. Sorry I am going on and on, but I don't know where else to turn. Thank you for listening.
