I'm sorry Joeline ...if it is any help, all on this board (especially the caretakers) know how you feel...and we care.

I don't know the future but I believe in miracles and as a father of five I know your Dad is just as concerned for you as you are for him...

Whispered a prayer for comfort and a miracle as I hit the submit button.

Sorry to hear the news.  But I know that once it has spread that the only thing left is chemo which can only prolong and not cure.  My husband is going thru the same thing right now.  As his caregiver, I know how you feel.  Just enjoy each day as it comes and do whatever your father wishes.  Just remember no one knows what the future holds or how long we have but the man upstairs.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your father during this time.

You are in my prayers.  So sorry to hear this.  Read about low does naltrexone.  It has prolonged people's life with late term cancer.   Ann

Hi Joeline,

I am new to this site and you are my first posting. I am so sorry to hear about your Dad but I do have a suggestion for you...Make sure you get Hospice services. This will ensure the best quality of life for your Dad and the more comfortable he is, the longer he will have the will to live. I used to be a Hospice nurse and have lost 2 parents to cancer so I know where you are and can empathize. Also Hospice will be a help to you and your family whether Dad stays home with family caregivers or somewhere else. God Bless.
