Dad is older and we were told he is not getting hardly any air in his lungs and he may not be here for Christmas according to hospice. He has an aortic anyersm as well. I spent all night crying, I mean I knew he was bad but now hearing this and knowing it is soon, I just wanna know do you think he will be in much pain. Also how do you explain to your son who is 14 what is going on , he knows dad is bad and will never get any better but do I tell him the recent news so he will know that it may be sooner?Answer Question

I agree with telling your son now so he can mentally prepare himself to this unfortunate loss of his grand father. Normally when it's someones time to go and hospice is there, they give them a morphine drip and they usually are comfortable and feel no distress and go with peace. Hoping this for your father........I'm sorry your going through this, but when my dad went with the same thing your dad has, I was happy he was finally at peace.....
