Topic: Update on dad
Well, it seems that my dad still has pneumonia. However, it is steadily getting better without medication, so that is a good thing. But on the other hand, his pain has increased tremendously from the spreading of the cancer. The doctor said it is progressing faster than they expected. They called hospice in this past week to begin pain management at home. It seems to be helping and he is actually up and about more than he was previously. The nurses are great. "Hospice" just seems so final. It has been hard for the family dealing with that. But we are all working on taking it one day at a time and trying to make the most of each day. Still hoping for a wonderful birthday vacation for dad in April!
