Hi. My Dad was recently diagnosed with stage 4 RCC with mets to liver. Within a couple weeks he has suffered a stroke. I live across the country from him and so am relying on what closer family members are telling me. Unfortunately I can't see him with my own eyes. They seem to think he is doing great and will live many more years. I am a nurse. I am really struggling with having the hope that my family members have. Every bit of the nurse in me says I am losing my daddy! I know that faith and hope play an integral part in survival. Please help me find this hope. I know what stage 4 RCC with distant mets means in the medical field. I can't look beyond that, and for that I feel hopeless!
