My name is Aveena and currently live in Mumbai I recieved news today that my dad is terminal anything between 6-8 months. It strated as colon cancer diagnosed mid novemeber which they were suppose to operate on 24 November only to discover it has now spread to the entire liver and bones. The doctors say they will only try to make him comfortable nothing they can do. I feel helpless, angry, sad, mad...My family are all in South Africa and I am away from them so I feel guilty too. I have a 8 week baby that has not seen grandad (nana) yet. I am looking for hope. Doctors say 6 months, do I be realistic and face this or be optimistic and deny this as a certainity and focus energy to find a way to make him live longer.
