My dad was diagnosed with prostrate cancer about 2 1/2 years ago. He is now 83 and it has spread to his bones. Initially he was very matter of fact about it. He's not someone to talk about his feelings, so it's hard to know what really goes on in his head. I have two brothers and we try and attend hospital appointments with him but it seems really difficult to get any information. He went through a stage of ringing the ambulance every time he felt unwell, but after a meeting with his palliative day care, he now knows when he needs to ring an ambulance and when not to. He has recently been in hospital having suffered what appeared to be a stroke. The doctors have said for months now that there is nothing else they can do other than manage the pan.
Him and my mum bicker all the time. She's not particularly well either and they seem to wind each other up. As he doesn't really want to go anywhere and sleeps a lot this gets her down. We all work full time so can't be there all of the time. When I visit I seem to be doing practical things and quite often sorting things out as they are both confused about what is going on. I don't know how long my dad has left and would like this time to be better quality than it is now.
it's hard to explain what's going on, but any help would be appreciated
