Well it's been awhile since i posted:
Things have not been great honestly.My dad is getting worse quickly. He's been doing so well for so long. And all the sudden we hit a brick wall!!
He is 58 years young. Stage Iv stomach cancer mets to spine esophagus and kidney possible brain. We've been in hospice for the last four months. We've known things weren't looking good. But in the last 3 days things have gotten bad. Weakness in right side.. Now he's not using it at all. Had to catch him from falling down the steps night before last.
He looks like he's aged 40 yrs in two days. We are thinking he had a stroke but he won't go to the hospital or anything. His nurse was in on thursday and tested him for a stroke, but just ordered more detailed blood test in a week when he goes in for his normal one seeing that he is on a blood thinnner due to a blood clot two years ago.
Since Friday he has really declined and Im not sure he will even last hours much less days.
Much love to all of you!
