I think my Dad has a Ulcer..? Or maybe worse...anyone know?

I don't know what it could be but I am sure it could be many different things.

For starters my Dads a smoker...a pretty heavy one at that, when I say that hes probably a few cigerettes away from being a chain smoker. He has smoked for YEARS and years. He also used to be a big heavy coffee drinker until just recently where he just can't stand to drink it anymore. In fact, he acutally got sick off of coffee and ended up throwing it up the other morning. My Dad is 49 years old and usually when the grandkids are around hes just a big kid himself.

Lately hes had severe lack of appetite, energy hes loss weight hes also like I said vomited and just this evening (he a truck driver) dropped to his knees cuz he couldn't breath hooking his trailers up. I am really worried and I  hope its nothing real serious! Does anyone else know what it could be? Here is a pic of me and my Dad just a few weeks ago..

That's so sad. I hope you can convince your dad to see a dr. soon so they can figure out what is going on. It just doesn't sound good. I get so frustrated with my own chain-smoking parents but I guess the bottom line is we can't force our parents to do something that they don't want to do....
