Current stage :-
1.Feeding thru tube
2.on oxygen
3.he does not recognize any one
4.completely on bed
5. Urine also thru pipe
6.sleep at least 20 hrs

Not sure what else to be expected from him And what would the life expectancy and I don't want him to suffer any more. Don't know what stage he is in & after reading online figure out its last stage. Feel so sad looking at this stage and not sure what they think day & night.

I am so grateful to everyone on this board. Though I have not been here long, it has made a world of difference to me. Because of the information and kindness here, I felt somewhat prepared and comfortable the various painful stages that presented over the past 17 days which I can't forgot all my life time those 15 days Where I was holding his hand 24/7.
Thanks once again for all your support..

It sounds like you dad is very close to the end. Hospice care at home is the best wat to go at this point but if you can't get Medicare or can't pay for hospice care you need to make him as comfortable as possible. If he is in the hospital maybe you should leave him there until the end of life. He will get the care he needs. Dealing with a dying elder at home without hospice or medical help will not be easy. I'm a hospice volunteer and I can attest to how much families appreciate in home hospice care. The most common remark I hear is "I don't know how we could have gotten through this without the help from hospice". Sorry you're going through this difficult time.

Hugs to you Lilly, I'm sorry for your father's passing. I hope it's some comfort to you to think that, knowing how impaired his brain function was by the end of his life, he probably was less aware of his own condition than you were. A terrible thing for you to have to witness, but perhaps worse for you than it was for him. Look after yourself, hugs again.
