My uncle is dying of terminal cancer. About a year ago, he was diagnosied with colon cancer. He was operated on and received chemotherapy. A year later (recently) my family and I that the cancer has spread to his organs and lymph nodes which concluded that his cancer was terminal and the doctors gave him days to weeks to live. The doctors have sent him home because there was nothing else they could do. They tried chemotherapy again, but it made him extremely ill. He is now at home with my grandmother and other uncle (they all live together). My family and I have been taking turns in caring for him as my grandmother is 86 and my other uncle has his own medical complications (heart surgery). It has been very heartbreaking caring for my uncle with terminal cancer because each day he gets weaker and weaker. We don't expect him to live long but it has been very hard on the family. He is not aware that his days are "numbered" he just knows that the cancer has taken over his body. He has so much faith and believes that God will perform a miracle. We all have faith but also know that we are watching our uncle slowly slip away. I guess what I am asking for is support. What else can I do to make my uncle comfortable as he slowly is dying in front of us. It just breaks my heart because he tells us everyday that God will save him. Any kind words of support would help! Thank yuou all for listening.
