    My Dad...

    Jodie, Thank you. I, too, still find myself coming to the forum. It's almost like a link to my dad I think. I find that I still can't believe it's happened. Everything seemed to move so fast for my Dad and caring for him was such a big part of my life that I can't seem to get back into the...

    My Dad...

    Thank you all for your care and understanding. Everything seemed to happen so fast that at times I still feel like it's not real. I find that it helps to remind myself that Dad has gone to be with Mom, and that they are both free from pain and worry. In the midst of losing Dad we have just...

    My Dad...

    I just wanted to let everyone know that my Dad passed away last Thursday (Feb. 15th). It's been a very difficult time. He got pneumonia and it was like he just couldn't fight any longer. His passing was peaceful, but heartbreaking. I'm thankful that I have been fortunate enough...

    Oxygen

    The trouble is...my doctor doesn't indicate whether he knows what he is doing or not. That's why this is so scary. I inquire about a treatment I've read or asked about in the forum, he writes a prescription. You good people have been my guides. The doctor doesn't do tests, he prescribes...

    Oxygen

    Thanks Al. Was pretty sure the 02 was okay for Dad. The BiPap I'm not familiar with and assumed the doctor would know, although he does tend to give me whatever I think might be good for Dad which is scary. I have to be careful, read up on everything, and have come to depend on this forum...

    how old

    Age of Diagnosis My Dad is 77 years old. He started having falls about 6 - 8 months prior to this. (He was still farming full time at this point.) He had other symptoms earlier such as weight loss, etc. but everyone thought it was the stress due to my mother being ill. Mom passed away in...

    Oxygen

    Just got back from spending 4 weeks with Dad. He's really having difficulty talking now so I am thinking it's time to start alternative ways of communicating. His doctor has prescribed oxygen for dad. He has had a couple of chest infections and was diagnosed with COPD a couple of years ago...

    My Dad...

    Thanks so much for your reply....the nearest hospice is 3 hours away from us. It's very difficult for dad to travel. I would love to be able to call a hospice and get such help. Everything is very scary. I'm wondering which pill your mom got to help with the phlegm. Dad is using a...
