First, I am so sorry you are having to deal with this horrible disease with your father. My prayers go out to your family. Unfortunately, not even the best doctors can tell you how long he will live. The doctor can tell you what to expect as time goes on. I suggest you call and ask for his doc to call you so you can discuss these issues. Your father can be made comfortable and if the doctor orders it, a nurse can come in to help him a few times a week. I'm sorry I could not help more, but I'm happy you came to this site for support. The DC family will be here for you if you need us.
Hello. Something to consider during this difficult time. Have him sign a health directive so his end is comfortable and is or is not prolonged on a machine. He also needs to assign power of attorney so bills are paid. Ask him about his wishes. Perhaps he wants to see someone or talk with someone. The hospital or a physician has these forms.
This is the time to contact Hospice, doctor will write the order, and learn what you can do to help him and your family. They offer many services and will answer many questions for you. They are the experts in this area of life.and provide end of life care.
I have been through this when my mother died of cancer. It can do much for you and others to process your feelings and know he is being care for. Blessings to all of you. May he be free of pain. Karen
By the way, eating is not needed at this time. It is a natural process of the body shutting down. He does not need food. He only requires fluids. He will sleep more and more. We made the mistake of tube feeding. Mom ripped it out and she was around many months more. She had a strong heart. The body is amazing and he will go when it is his time.
I think only GOD can answer this question.Best is to Pray and follow 7
Steps (as below ) to make his worldly stay more comfortable and Happy.
1.Meditate and Pray that He comes out of this problem . If he meditates
and resolves that he can cure himself , amazing things happen.
2.He must try to get free of Toxic attitudes and emotional pains .Listen to
light music , do Yoga , breathing exercises and forgive and forget past (ver difficult but not Impossible.
3.Establish very healthy daily routine,. Switch to 100% Veg diet .Try to
remember HIS name 24x7.
4.Call the Doctor of Doctor Within . Pray for Spiritual help and speak to heart , diseased organs and see positive rays healing them.
5.Try to achieve Synergy between Body, Mind and Soul.Meditate , Listen to Mantras on youtube.
6.Donate for good cause . Do some service and Be happy.Try to pay off karmic balance.
7. You need to create Healthy , Healing Environment.Be Positive.
I have recovered from severe heart attack and 40 days in ER , 2 years back and writing this FROM EXPERIENCE.
If you can visit India and plan Ayurvedic Treatment , may be I can help.
GOD BLESS and my sincere Prayers for his recovery .
Presently , i am on vacation in USA and you may write to me . Thanks
I am so truly sorry about your dad's health... I just lost a sister in 2010 that passed in my apt after coming to see me she never woke... Now 2 the ? at hand there is no one not even a doc that can pin point and exact time of how long he has only GOD can do that... my dad has passed as well and he had triple bypass, parkinson's disease just to name a few... and that is not what took his like staff infection did... I feel like the person didn't get him up and moving enough to were he got bed sores etc and causes him to pass..so u see even with everything your dad is suffering from, he can surprise you and be around longer then u think... there is a lot of help out there... my friend had prostate cancer and they removed his prostate and he is fine now and he is in his 60's..never give up hope and never stop praying... spend every second u can with him, and do all u can do to see if there is any other help out there... I wish you and your dad nothing but peace... GOD BLESS U BOTH..
