It's hitting me harder then I expected.

My step father was diagnosed with lung cancer about a year ago, it has since spread and he doe not have much longer to go. Today he was put into Hospice. I have not seen him in about 4 years and up until a few months ago I had not even talked to him in 3 years. We did not have a good relationship and him and my Mom have not been together in about 10 years. I did not expect to feel as upset as I do, I am trying to talk to his daughter about taking the kids to see him before he passes. I am really just overwhelmed by it all.

I'm so sorry to hear all that. You never know how something will hit you until you're faced with it. I was not on good terms with my father when he passed and it's very difficult. 

I hope you get to see him and have some sense of closure.

I did speak to my stepsister. She has told me that it is worse then I had thought. He has1-2 weeks left. She suggested if I come to not bring the kids as he has been randomly screaming and it might scare them. I am trying to make it there on Friday and hoping I make it in time.
