Life on Hold
I've talked about my father-in-law before. He has battled one cancer or another over the last 8 years. He is 92 and does not easily give up.
He was having trouble walking. Actually having trouble moving his left leg. About 5 days ago he entered the hospital to find out that he has a tumor on his spine and his lung cancer has grown. He would not be able to take chemo, but they are treating the tumor with radiation.
We go go see him in the morning for 4-5 hours then go back in the evening for 3-4. Terry's youngest sister spends the night with him taking care of him. The hospital he is in was once, in our opinion, the best in the area. However, it has been bought by a large corporation and it has changed a lot. Our family is not impressed.
We can't speculate what the next few days will bring, but we will be there to see him through it.
