Keep in mind that sometimes when folks look like death, they still hang in there, even for several years. That being said, its not always about the outside appearance of quality of life, but that we all do our best to enjoy what life our loved ones are given. We make their lives all the more comfortable by embracing the reality of what it is with the optimism not necessarily in the prognosis, but in the ability to make the best of whatever time is left, in whatever circumstances they are.
While some of the darkest moments in my life have occurred in hospital ICUs, in cancer wards, at peoples' deathbeds, in all actuality I must admit some of my most cherished memories are in those very same places, in those very same circumstances. Do you're best to make the best of it, its what your dad needs most here.
cool, thanks Suchfriends. no, he's really dying. he's had Hep C for years without any treatment and has continued to drink non stop since he found out a long time ago. drinking with hepititis is a big NO NO. he knew this and we're all paying the price.
he can get better, i hope. it doesn't look good though.
