Re: My FIL
Sorry to hear about your FIL. I lost my dad a month and a half ago-
sclc, mets to the brain. I don't know about anyone else's experience and
everyone is different, but my dad had a lack of appetite for months, but forced himself to eat. At the end, when he stopped eating almost completely(a couple bites of soup that we fed him) he lasted for only a week. Is your
FIL in bed? Is he able to talk? (my dad had very little speech for a couple of months, due to the brain mets but, again, everyone is different). I know how
you feel because I hated seeing my dad ,who was such a strong man, so weak and I hated watching him suffer.
I wish I had a better answer for you, but I do know that my dad ,when dx with brain mets,like your FIL had no treatments and did fairly well for about 5 months, then took a turn for the worse and we lost him within a couple of weeks. When you are at the very end, you will know, and hospice will most likely give you a better time frame- my dad's hospice nurse let us know when he probably had about 72 hours and they were right.
I will be praying for you and your family. I know how difficult this part is, and
not knowing was difficult for me also.
