    My father has endstage colon cancer. He's fought it for four years now. To make a long story short, he's nearing the end and it's the toughest thing I've gone through. If you could keep my family (especially my mother) in your prayers and well wishes it would mean so much to me. Thank you FSU.

    Thank you all. It does help to read your kind words. Two nights ago my dad couldn't sleep and was in bad back pain. He's now on morphine and ativan and slept most of yesterday and today. Hospice says to just make him comfortable. My mother and I were caring for him since his last hospital stay last week. Prior to that last hospital stay he was still able to walk although he had slowed down a lot in the last month. My two brothers are here now since yesterday and are staying to help. We're all sleep deprived - trying to give each other rest, but it's hard to sleep. It breaks my heart to see my dad in pain and discomfort. Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts.

    Thanks again guys. I really appreciate it. My dad is still getting medicated approximately every four hours. He's pretty drugged up, when he is awoken he is glassy eyed. But he's not in pain. I make sure to smile at him and tell him "We love you" when he has slightly lucid moments. He tried to say I love you back last night, but he doesn't really have the strength to talk now. I do know that's what he was trying to say and while I held his hand he tried to bring it up to his mouth to kiss it like he used to do. The nurse who came last night said he might have hours to a couple days. The doctor today said maybe two days. It's really hell - the waiting. I just want to make sure he's not in pain and that he knows we love him. Thank you for all your kind posts, rep and PMs.
