Amy, I agree that if they are suggesting Hospice, then your dad doesn't have much longer to live. Hospice can come to the home, so he would not need to be in the hospital or a NH. Most likely, he will slip into a coma and die. It really doesn't sound as though there is anything the medical profession can do at this time to extend his life.
Remember, we are always here for you.
Hi, I just want to thank you all for the wonderful support. My dad passed away last evening at 11:57 pm. Time of death was posted for 1:20 am though when the hospice nurse arrived. Thankfully he never seemed to be in any pain. My sister was able to be with him right up till the end. He was in a coma for the last few days but I still think that he was trying to respond to us. He was a great man and will be missed dearly. Again thank you all so much and my thoughts and prayers will be with you all.
