my dad is dying of throat cancer

hello to everyone. my dad is dying of cancer and only has 6 months to live but he is already not doing good . its been really hard on my mom . and i just dont know what to do or how to deal with this . my dad is really depressed he wont eat . he wont do anythig he just sits on the couch all day and doesnt want to talk about anything. he is already coughing and he is 0n oxgen. i cant deal with this cuz i love him so much and cant lose him . i just dont know what to do for him and my mom. it just doesnt make sense to me why this has to happen.

Re: my dad is dying of throat cancer

I feel your pain. There is nothing harder to go through.

Why don't you start asking your dad questions about his life, perhaps about his early years. There are probably a lot of things you don't know about him. You might also consider getting out all your photos and creating a "This is Your Life" album all about him. Get him to talk about the photos.

Best wishes to you.
