Hi, my Stepdad has been to the consultant today to find out his prognosis, unfortunately I couldn't go but my husband went with him and has just messaged me to say that it is bad news - he has been given months to live without treatment and a year at most with. I don't know the full picture yet but he has been sent for a chest x-ray and starts Chemo on 26th August. We are away on holiday (for just under a month!) from Saturday, my Mom is frail and unable to do much (she has her own health issues!!). I just don't know how to get my head around it all and what I can do to help. Any advice would be welcome. I can't imagine how he is feeling, how do you digest news like that? Life can be so cruel ....
