Thank you all for the kind words of support as my family deals with all this heartbreak.

It is too hard for me to respond to each comment at this time, but please know that I  have read them all and saved them to reread again when times get too sad.

They moved my father to palliative care on the 14th which is a nicer environment than the hospital ward he was in before. Its a lot more peaceful. I think we finally have his pain under control and for the most part he is comfortable. 

The cancer has taken him away from us for the most part, but he still knows who we are and understands when we say we love him. He was such an amazing vibrant man before the cancer and it is sad to watch him go like this. He deserves better. 58 is too young to die, but now we wait day by day to see what comes as we slowly watch him slip away from us and our heartbreak goes to another level that before we thought impossible

  1. My thoughts and prayers are still with you and your family. I have found Palliative Care a comforting place to be. Be present to and lean on each other as you travel the last bit of the journey with your dad.
