My father’s condition is variable right now: in addition to the cancer there are issues surrounding his kidney function, which is ultimately the part that could end things pretty quickly. There is also a possibility that he will now accept treatment, which he previously declined. So things are changing on a near-daily basis, and we don’t have any solid answers or information at this point. It is all very day-to-day.
My sister and I are trading off being home for the time being in order to support our mom who is the primary caregiver and is exhausted in pretty much every possible way. Bless her strength, as she soldiers on without complaint and with an always positive and empathetic demeanor.
