Cliff stayed home again. Cameron threw up again this morning. The rest of us are feeling a lot better. I feel weak. I lost 5 pounds of fluids I swear. I ate 1 slice of toast and a scrambled egg today. And, my interest for food is coming back. Thank goodness. I have spent most of the day on the couch.
I think we are all on the mend! I still have to download our photos from Coco's Baptism last Sunday. And, on this Sunday my FIL will be Baptised at home. So we are happy about that. My FIL also has a scoocum new chair from Lazy Boy. He finds it to be quite comfortable. We are happy about that, because we know he is in so much pain. I just feel so ill over everything right now. I feel so sad for Cliff and his family. So, we take every day as it comes and enjoy life whilst FIL is still here. What else can we do right? We just hate seeing him deteriorate right in front of us. We know how much pain he is in. He is a trouper that is for sure. Thankfully we have good home care nurses here, and a great doctor that makes home calls.
We took Dad to the Cancer Centre on Tuesday. It was regarding chemo, but Dad has decided not to do the chemo as he had terrible results dealing with the after effects with the last 5 chemo sessions he did last year. And, because of his low weight it really wasn't advisable. And, chemo isn't a guarantee. Really it could give him MAYBE an extra month or two. But really what kind of extra months/life?. We are thankful that the meds are helping him keep pain free as possible. It is hard to see him dopey though. Slowly we are losing him. I am sad for us all.
How will we tell the kids? That is going to be so hard. One day at a time...one day at a time.
