My father was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer 4 months ago and he has gotten progressively weaker. He's was in the hospital treated for sepsis then released home into hospice care about a month ago. I wonder if knows that he's actually dying. The doctor only told him that further treatments wouldn't help him. Even before he was diagnosed with cancer he became withdrawn, does that mean he knows he's dying? When the hospice first came to visit they asked him a series of questions. I was in the next room. She asked him something if he had a plan with a certain funeral home. I heard her say I didn't mean to make you upset. I hated that. She had already asked me and my brother the same question earlier. I can see he's fading day by day. The hospice handbook recommends saying goodbye. I'm afraid that he might be confused, think I'm going away, or start asking questions and get upset.
