Unhappy Prayers needed again.

Before I get into what is going on right now I am going to back track to about a year ago when I made a thread about my dad. For those of you who don't know, my dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 (Glioblastoma) Brain Cancer 6 years ago. They managed to remove most of it, but they couldn't get it all. At the time he was only supposed to live a year, but he is still here today. Ever since he had his cancer he has had a little bit of a hard time talking, but nothing that made it impossible to understand him.

So about a year ago, he started to get noticeably worse. He had a blood clot in has leg which made it hard for him to walk. At that same time he went to has monthly check up at Duke University (They specialize in cancer). They found out that a new tumor was starting to grow after about 4 or 5 years of nothing being in his brain since he got his first tumor removed. Throughout the year leading up until now he has tried MANY different medicines and chemo treatments. They managed to reduce the tumor, but now it has come back yet again. All throughout this time he has had a terrible time trying to walk and it has been a struggle to move him around. Just about a month ago he had a stroke, and that made his walking even worse. At this point I could clearly see that his health was declining.

Now, about 1 and 1/2 months after that I just received information from my Step mother that he was unresponsive on Sunday night so she called the ambulance. She said that they thought he had a seizure, but she didn't see any signs of a seizure at the time (She use to be a nurse). On Monday his doctor gave the order that he would be placed in Hospice.

It is just so sad to see him get so bad in just the span of 1 year. This all just seems so surreal and I have been very thankful that he hasn't been through any pain. It looks like the end is near, but I just can't except that. He is to young to be going this early (54). I'm to young to lose my dad to cancer. I am just entering some of the biggest years of my life!

So please pray for him and if you have any questions I will be happy to answer them!

It's tough. I'm not the type to cry, but it is really hard not to.

Update:

I called my step mom to see if I could talk to him. He was put on morphine, and can barely talk. I am glad that he could still talk to and hear me. My step mom said she doesn't know if he will make it through the night. I can't even take in what's going on....

Get in the car , get on a plane but somehow get there - if nothing more than to just hold his hand and tell him that you love him.

You will never regret this. Trust me.
