Hi all. My father has AML and is very much nearing the end of his life. He relapsed in October and has miraculously made it to February without treatment, only infusions twice weekly. He's avoided death by infection and everything else. But, he's now extremely weak - today, TOO weak to make it to the hospital for his infusion. Or the emergency room. Too weak to go anywhere. He's letting go and is through fighting. Now, his gums are bleeding a lot and he has blood marks on his calves (I forget their name). We're doubtful that he'll make it out of the house for any more infusions.
My question is: has anyone experienced another individual (particularly with leukemia) dying of internal bleeding? If so, any insight into what that looks like or could look like would be helpful. Our care team keeps giving us the run-around and doesn't want to answer it, maybe because of liability issues or something. Or not. I don't know. But my mom and I are his caregivers and we're nervous because we don't know what to expect. Any potential insight would be very appreciated.
