Hi guys. I just joined today because I'm having a really hard time dealing with everything in my life. My dad is in end stage cirhosis and has esophagus cancer. The doctors have told us there is nothing they can do for the cirhosis except to drain the fluid off of his abdomen to make him more comfortable, and the only option is radiation for the cancer, but they don't advise it because it will just make him feel worse. I quit nursing school to help my mom take care of him and so I can be around if they need anything, but it was really to spend more time with him. They have given him about a year left to live, but of course that is just a guess. I'm only 25 and it doesn't seem fair that I should lose my dad when I still need him so much. Sorry for rambling, I guess I just need some encouragement and advice. Thanks so much.
