Feeling heartbroken.. needing prayers

Unfortunately dad has taken a turn for the worse. He's been in the hospital since Friday and his health has declined massively. He's responsive at times but very confused. His breathing is heavy and his platlets are very low. His doctor will not continue his treatments as he could not withstand them in his condition. He's on pain meds and is very comfortable and will most likely pass at the hospital soon.

I am so heartbroken. He is my best friend and the best dad in the world. He's the strongest person I know. Please pray for him.

With sadness -

Lisa

  • So sorry Lisa. Sending prayers for your Dad. ๐Ÿ™

  • Lisa,

    I've sent up a prayer for a gentle landing for your dad and also for strength to see you through the days to come.

    From an outsiders view (one who has been a caregiver to a parent with lung cancer and now fighting it herself), your dad knows that he was loved and respected. This is a gift not to be taken lightly. You've been a great advocate for your dad. He's a lucky man to have had you for a daughter.

  • Denzie, I couldn't agree more, thank you for your wise words.

    Lisa, you are giving the greatest gift of all - love. Bless you for your generosity, some people cannot give that gift, but you have showered your father with it during your loving relationship. You and your father shared a deep love for a long time, that is simply as good as it gets on Earth.

    I am so very sorry for your pain,there simply aren't words for what your heart is enduring right now. Please take care of yourself. If you feel up to it, please keep talking to us - we want to help. No one should walk this alone...ever.

    Caring thoughts and prayers to you and your Father. I hope this is a peaceful and grace-filled passage, please remember he can hear and feel you even if he can't respond. Touch him, talk to him, be with him - I am sure you know all of that. If you would like to talk, please don't hesitate to call me. I would love to hear from you - 844.835.4325 or 608.828.8847.

    Sincere caring hugs.

  • Hi Lisa,
