My dad has lung cancer. The drs. don't think he will make it another week. I live 10 hrs. from dad. My two sisters are leaving to go see him. I saw him Thanksgiving, and had a great time. We both talked, laughed, and cut up. I knew when I left it would be the last time that I would see him alive.
I don't want to see him sick in the hospital. I want my last memories of my dad to be of us having a good time. I realize this isn't about me, it's about him.
You wonderful caregivers have been their with your spouse when he/she passed away. Do I set my feelings/emotions to the side, and go? Did your spouse want to see his loved ones, or want to be alone?
My dad isn't talking,so we can't ask him. We aren't for sure if he is aware of who is around or what is going on, due to lack of oxygen to his brain, and pain meds.
