Well my dad has COPD and we just found out that he has an anyersm and because he is in stage three with the COPD they can not operate, because he more than likley woul not make it through. We just have to sit and wait. Us three kids and my mom decided that the frame of mind that dad is in not to tell him how bads this is, and to let him enjoy the time he has left with his grandkids and us, well my dads sister says we are completely wrong. Well she has seen him one time in 15 years so I don't think she know him well enough to make that decision. DO YOU THINK WE ARE WRONG? I know my dad telling him could make things worse.

I think it would depend on the person. We found out my grandmother had cancer approx two months before she passed. We did not tell her. I think she knew that she was dying. I did Meth for five years. At the end, my doctor told me that I was headed to the graveyard. (Literally!!) He said later he knew I was doing something, but did not know what. No one needed to tell me that. Every day that passed, I could feel myself getting weaker and weaker. My point is that I think that people can feel the end coming when it's close. I,myself,would want to know so I could make all the arrangements I needed to make. As far as not telling him due to his frame of mind, I think it is a matter of decision between your mom, you and your siblings. I'm so sorry that you are having to face this. ((((((HUGS)))))) You and your family will be in my prayers.
