Taking care of Dad with Mesothelioma

Started by

Dad is 81 years old, just had his first chemo, and is not feeling well at all. He has rarely been sick his entire life. He does not like being a burden, but he is not, and I have told him that. He is expected to live maybe a year or so. I need to keep him comfortable physically and mentally. He really doesn't want anyone else's help but mine, we are very close. I have 2 brothers but they don't get involved. I just don't know what to do as this progresses. I feel like his whole life is in my hands, and it is all on me to make sure this last part of his life is handled the best way possible.
