Diagnosis for Dad = Cancer!

Today I travelled to the city where my dad lives, to the hospital to be exact. Dad phoned me on Saturday morning to say he couldn't move in bed. I rang the ambulance and to cut the story short, he was admitted to hospital. I travelled down, then again on Sunday, then today. The journey is 1..1/2 hours one way. The Dr. came late this afternoon to tell dad and myself, that he has bone cancer, no cure, and it had most likely gone elsewhere. That's life. Have no idea how long he has, but rest assured I will be not far away...

  2. The same happened to my father except a little different. He had lung cancer which spread before they found out. I think he had a year after that before he passed away. I'm sorry to hear your news, it's never easy.

    1. Thank you Gosia. Yes, our parents are important to us, teaching us many things through out our lives and theirs. My dad is mentally sharp, in other words nothing wrong with his brain. He is 90 and has a good life.
