Last night the shit totally hit the fan. My dad was disoriented, crabby, mean, and he looked horrible. After some serious convincing (basically an intervention this morning from his best friend) we got him to a doctor to do some blood tests.
We all knew what it was and we were right. His ammonia levels are off the charts which is due to his liver shutting down. The cancer has basically destroyed it.
On Monday we were talking and watching the Walking Dead. On Tuesday he was stumbling around the house. On Wednesday the doctor told us to call our family as there wasn’t much time left.
Tomorrow my mom and dad go to the doctor’s office to start talking about hospice… the thing I’ve been dreading the most.
I’ve been waiting for weeks for this day to come but I really didn’t think it would come this fast. All I can ask is prayers and good vibes for me and the fam. Let’s hope this next stage goes quickly so he’s not in pain.
