My father is not doing too well. He is not eating or drinking very much at all. His regular doctor said he is fading away. We have decided to bring him home to live out his last days with me and my husband. I know it won't be easy........

Hi,
I'm sorry to hear that your dad isn't doing well but know that your have lots of support here. It's difficult to lose anyone but more when it is a parent I think. It is spring time a time of new life for some that is a comfort. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

If your father is going to pass away soon at least he will be surrounded by the people that love him. To me that is the best gift you can give him. It is very very hard to watch someone we love die. I speak this from the heart. I was with my Gma when she took her last breath. My heart goes out to you and your family.

Dorsery.s Daughter, I am not sure what brought me to the forum today. I have not posted since my fathers passing in October. It is so difficult for a daughter to lose a father. I lost mine in October after his seven year battle with Alzheimer's. You are doing a very courages thing by bringing him home. My father passed away in his home with all of his children and wife surrounding him. Even though this is a very difficult time, for you as well as you father, it is a time you will never forget. Remember to stay close to him, look him in they eye, talk to him, really show him that he is loved.
I miss my father every day, but also try to think of him looking down on all of us with a clear mind, and he is truly happy.

I wish you well on this journey.
