I’m glad you’re back, but I am so sorry to hear about your dad. Have you talked to anyone at a hospice facility or nursing home, to ask about the steps to getting an at-home nurse? When might be exactly what your dad needs.

And not to detract from your dad’s situation, but what online course are you taking? It sounds really interesting.

(If you need to talk, my mom died of pancreatic cancer a few years back. It’s a brutal thing to go through, on both the patient and caregiver sides.)

Oh no, I am so sorry for what your dad is going through. I don’t know what advice to give about hospice or nurses. 🙁 I hope your father suffers very little and is surrounded by love.

@crebre80: I lost my aunt to cancer a couple of years ago and my grandmother this year. In the case of my aunt (who was literally our next door neighbor), she REFUSED to stay in the hospital once it was determined that her cancer was terminal. We worked with her Dr in order to make arrangements for a hospice nurse to come and visit her at my parents house (where she moved after she was released from the hospital). What we had to do was use the information from her Dr in order to file for disability from her job, and with the social security administration. Surprisingly enough, the process went really smoothly. Her Dr. put us in contact with the hospice arm of her hospital and that’s where we made arrangements for her nurse. The hospice nurse was invaluable b/c she not only helped make sure my aunt was comfortable and not in any pain, she helped US understand the process and gave us ways to help my aunt enjoy the time she had left. The hospice nurse also worked with us to make arrangements for what would happen during my aunt’s final hours.

I would HIGHLY recommend speaking with your father’s Dr and getting information about hospice.

As for the wedding….I think your father would be THRILLED just to see you be married. Five course dinner, or cake and champagne…he wouldn’t care.
