My father and his news

We got the bad news last week, that my father has lung cancer that has spread to his liver. My step-mother is being pushy and over protective. I have come to terms with his cancer and possiblely losing him. But she says he is starting chemo monday, but I am not sure he has any say in this. She is keeping him over medicated. She is a Nurse Practisioner(SP) and thinks she know how to take care of this. That is not the case. I care for my partner who is terminal with liver disease and I have seen what happens when a person with a bad liver is over medicated. The pain meds my step mother has my father on is building up in his liver and can not be moved out of his body fast enough. SO he is loopy all the time and very shaky and falls. I am going to talk to his chemo nurse and see if we can get this nipped in the bud NOW. Any ideas out there?
