My 92 yr old dad has just been diagnosed with lung cancer that has spread to breast, lymph gland, liver and bones. Initially i agreed with mother sister n my daughter that he doesn't need to know n we need to make special memories - this was before he deteriorated. He hasn't the energy to pull himself up n nurse takes him toilet in a chair. This evening he asked straight out "had we told him everything" I think we should have told him as they r already arranging Morphine injections. I feel ashamed watching my mother n sister blatantly lie. Everyone knows but him!! Can anyone relate to this dilemma n what did U do??? Thanks. Jeannie
