It's hard to watch someone die from cancer. I had to do it a couple years ago with my Nana, she was 86 & had cancer. It was sad to see the progression & it happened really quick. I hope your grandfather isn't in much pain & I hope he goes as peacefully as he can & I hate to say it bc I know your probably not ready but I hope he goes soon. Less suffering the better in my opinion =/

Ouch.  I had to take 2 children on a flight from North Carolina to Hawaii to see my brother.  He was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma and had weeks to live.  He was 37.  It is never easy to see the ones we love in pain, sick and dieing.  Hang in there and seek a friend to lean on.  I'm sorry you are going through this.

1 mom liked this
Go to a Hospice place
See if he can be on that
Not only will he die in peace but Hospice helps the family
I volunteer for one
Families see that I talk to their loved ones and I'm their like a friend
Family can't always be there so I keep them company
I'm so sorry for your lost

Hospice is great for the whole family
I love my patients
Hospice can actually expand the life of the patient
I've been with my patient now for 9 months
