My dad has been in hospice (at home) about 6 weeks and my sister and I have been planning a trip to visit relatives ..about 3 hours away from Dad. We have been putting off the trip for various reasons but lately my Dad seems weaker ..he isn't completely bedridden but close.
Yesterday he told me "we (meaning he and my mom) are going to need a lot of help pretty soon because I am getting weaker by the minute"
My dad never says things like that to anybody so it was pretty disarming.
I have been wrong before about his condition..thinking OK this is it and then he rallies and seems better.
It feels different this time and I feel uneasy leaving him. My mom would still have hospice support and my brother is also here.
Any opinions would be welcome
