My dad was dx with stage 3b lung cancer Christmas 08. He and my mom told us,1 sister and 2 brothers, on new years. What a blow! My dad is 80 yrs old, I knew he wouldn't live forever, I thought I would be more prepared for this but I am devastated.
I tell my siblings how lucky we were to of had him for our father. What a blessing we had such a good man and he was our dad for 50 yrs.
He is getting close to the end and I can't bear to see him so weak and sometimes confused. Heck, the man was trying to water ski not to many yrs ago and still bowled weekly until last month!
I already miss him. I try to tell him how wonderful he was as a father but I end up crying and I don't want to upset him. Maybe a letter is a good idea?
This is sooo hard. I have always been very close to my dad and I don't know how....
Thanks for listening Katie
