Welcome to HW, sorry you need to be here.
It's all a bit scary. I am sure it is taking a toll on your father too. All you can do is to keep learning and being there.
The prognosis might not be as bad as you think, it's not good, but there is plenty the docs can do and you father has every chance of being here for many more years. It won't easy or fun, but he has possibilities.
Hang in there,
I'll be in the shop.
