I have not been on here much as time is always taking for tending to my father. I know that he has been failing and I think when I read it today for the first time on paper it hit me hard. I don't think his doctor has told him how long he has and no one really knows but when they state life expectancy - six months or sooner it left me with so many emotions. Like I said I have been caring for him for almost two years and knowing he does not have long with us each day puts my reality check more closer, seeing it on paper. I just would like to ask any of you what you did or how you handled this with your own loved ones end of life issue. Thank you for reading and hugs to all of you. Caretaking is a job and for the most part is out of love. Burnout comes everyday and it can drain you. I hold on to hope and only pray that when the Good Shepard comes to take him Home that he will no longer be in pain. It sure is the most difficult thing I have ever gone through in my entire life.
