My Dad's health has been declining. He has battled cancer the majority of his life. Last year colon cancer, had a successful surgery to remove it. This year he has had an ulcer bleed & a another surgery. He hasn't been eating a whole lot or drinking very much and today he stopped eating and drinking completely. He has been hallucinating for almost 3 days. I have spoken with his doctor & he removed his pain med Tramadol hoping this is what was causing the hallucinations. It was like one day he was ok and the next day his brain flipped a switch. He forgot how to use a spoon so I spoon fed him yesterday morning but he would only eat a little. I know he has always told me no tubes and no machines to keep me alive. His doctor said he feels it may be time for Hospice because he feels my Dad does not seem to be getting better. He said he doesn't believe he will make it 6 months. He is the kindest doctor ever. He even comes to the house to see my Dad. My heart hurts because there is nothing I can do to make him better. All I do is sit with him offer him fluids or something to eat. I hold his hands, rub them & sponge bathe him everyday so that he is fresh & change him about 5 x a day so he doesn't form bed sores. I wished I knew what to do. Hoping to get more answers come Monday Morning. Heavenly Father, please don't let my Daddy suffer too long. Thank you all for letting me get it all out. (Vent) I appreciate our group! God Bless you!
