Hi, my name is Chrissy, I've posted on the lung cancer board before, but never here on caregivers, although, I've read many posts here and it seems there are many wonderful people here. Anyway, my father, 74, was diagnosed with stage IV NSCLC on 10-8-10. They did chemo, which seemed to help for a while, but now there is a new spot growing, and the chemo is no longer working. They just decided yesterday to set up hospice. He is going downhill fast, and while I knew that time would be limited, I didn't think it would be this quick. From everything I understand, we'll hopefully have another month with him. So, I'm asking for prayers that my father doesn't suffer in the end here, and also, for me, for strength and courage to accept and face what is to come. Thank you. And prayers and thoughts to everyone here.
