Re: How do you know if its time to go?

Well, I do know vomiting and only eating a few spoonfulls of food each day is not normal. Have you asked him why he isn't eating? I haven't seen your dad's medical chart but I think what you need to do is take him somewhere else to get a second opinion if you are uncomfortable with the care he is receiving. As a family member, what you can do is make sure you advocate for him (sounds like you are already doing that) and continue to communicate all of your concerns to the physician and nurse. Family members know the patient better than anyone.
