my dad has had emphysema for 11 yrs..he has the lungs of an 160 yr old...he is wheelchair bound due to weakness. lately he has been very depressed, tired, confused. he has been in bed for a week. he has had all the treatment that they can do. he is past rehabilitation. he tried it again and he is too weak. he had to quit. he has been hospitalized 9 times this year. had pneumonia several times..he called this morning and said he is having alot of trouble breathing. he thinks the end is near..now i have not been with him through the disease, so i dont know alot about it...he came home when he got bad. is this really the end , or is he so depressed that he believes it is??
