First My Mom, Now This......

Recommended Posts

My Mom's husband who is like a Dad to me got diagnosed with stage 4 Lung Cancer today. My Mom hasn't even been gone 3 months and I'm barely surviving that loss, now I'm so scared about the future for my Dad. I'm worried he'll be in pain. I don't even know if he can do treatments because he's much older than she was so he's already weak. I just feel so awful. I'm here with him and I will take care of him unless I start to need help, then we'll get a nurse. So far he seems fine and can take care of himself.

I just don't know what to expect and I'm scared he'll suffer. I love him and don't want anything to happen to him. I can't believe this is happening again, so soon after my Mom. I try to live in the moment but it's very hard to do that.

We are getting a second opinion next week.
