Waiting for Dad

My father has stomach cancer and has stopped eating and is only drinking a bit. I have no idea how much longer he'll survive and its driving me crazy. He thinks he only has days but I'm thinking he's active and drinking some so he may be around for awhile. I feel like I'm just waiting for him to die. I don't live in the same state so I'd have to fly to be with him. I feel like I can't plan anything, I don't accept invitations...My family (husband and kids) had a vacation to Hawaii planned and I feel like I should cancer. My life is on hold and I can't live like this. Any suggestions?
