Last week I told you all that dad was going in for a bone scan to see if the cancer had spread to his bones. Well mom got the results yesterday. Yes it has spread and its through is whole body. Its probably why he is in so much pain. He is now on morphine to help with that. I dont know how much time he has but I am going to assume that it wont be that long. I know that once cancer is in the bones, it doesnt take much time to spread through the body. The next days, weeks, how ever long, I’m going to try to see dad as much as I can.
I just talked with mom on the phone. She said that the Doctor came by the house last night. He prescribed some stronger medications. Checked over dad and talked with mom for a while. He has taken dad off some meds that he really doesnt need to take anymore. Like his diabetes, liver and heart pills. She did ask the Doctor as to how long he has and the Doctor has said that it could be days or weeks all depending on how strong he is.
This is going to very hard on Mom. She is a strong woman and we all know she will be ok. She has her family by her side.
