My dad was diagnosed 6 months ago with terminal mesothelioma and he is having a difficult time. How do you get a terminally ill person to enjoy every day they have left and make the most of it? I spent the weekend with my parents and my mom vented to me about my dad and asked me how to deal with it and for me to talk to my dad. Every morning when he has to take his arsenal of medication he cries and throws the pills back into the cabinet. Everything is making my dad angry and upset. He flies off the handle at everything. We try and get my dad to understand that he/we need him to spend as much time as he can with his grandkids and family. But how do you get him to see that enjoy everyday and try and make as many memories he can. I fear that my 8 yr old son will only remember that his grandpa was too sick to watch him play at the park or playing soccer. I want my son to have the same fond memories of his grandpa that I had growing up as his daughter. Any advice on how to get mhy dad to just enjoy everyday and treasure the time he does have left no matter how short it may be.
