FI is down stairs having pool night with some work friends, so I’m trying to stay quiet as I sit here and cry – while attempting to work on my thesis presentation.
I just got this very sad email from my mom just now:
“Dad has asked me to update you on our recent (today) visit to Dr. XXX’s office. Dr. XXX had reviewed the CT Scan and agreed with Dad that he has made the right decision in declining anymore chemo.
Dad’s favorite nurses and medical assistants came in and shed a tear or two with us and wished dad and myself the best of luck and said they would be here for us if and when we needed them. That was about all the visit was. That was our last visit down to the university [where he gets treatment] as far as it goes. It was a very sad day for all of us. The chance of any hope is gone.”

It’s so freaking sad. He is pretty scared. My dad is only 58. I am flying home next month. He is in Indiana; I’m in Utah. I have a thesis to defend this month, so I want to get it out of the way as soon as possible.

Hugs and love to you my dear. I am so so very sorry to read this news. My thoughts are with you and your precious family.

So sorry to hear that, my thoughts are with you.
I think you should call your FI aside and talk to him. I know my DH would feel really guilty if he found out afterwards that i had news like that while he was having fun with his friends. He would want to be supporting me, not playing pool. Take tonight off, unless the distraction helps you.

I’m so sorry. /hugs
Please go get your FI, I’m sure he’d want to support you right now.

Oh God. I’m so sorry. 🙁
Just spend as much time with him as you can. Is there any way for you to defer/get an extension on your thesis? I’m so sorry to hear your news.

I am so sorry this is happening. I don’t have any advice, just internet hugs for you.

I am so sorry. Cancer is an evil thing. I lost my very young aunt to breast cancer a year ago right after her 41st birthday. She was more like a sister to me. I can’t imagine losing my dad.

I am so so sorry. I can’t even begin to imagine what you are going through. Please try your best to stay strong and positive; while it must be such a tough thing to go through, I’m sure your dad will love seeing you happy and smile for him within the next months. xoxo
