Re: New here... Dad (78) has AML

Thank you... appreciate the kind words. I know just what you mean. I was surprised that my Dad didn't protest a bit when we insisted he move in with us. I'm glad he is here to spend time with us and my daughters adore him. Sadly, I have already gone down this road. My Mom has been gone 3 years and her story is similar. She was diagnosed with cancer and sent home with hospice. In just over two weeks she was in a coma and she passed 3 weeks later. I can't believe I'm doing this again - bringing another parent home to watch him fade away.
