I lost my dad march 2022 to lung cancer. He was 79. I’m 42. In the last 48 hours of his life I’m so traumatized by what I had to do for him it is breaking my heart and my mind. We promised him he would stay home which he did, but at a massive cost to me. I’m in therapy now to help me deal with the trauma. Reach out if u can relate. X

Hi @Davejnr…I totally understand. My dad had lung cancer as well. He went through Chemo and Radiation. Then in April 2022 he had complications from the radiation. He ended up in the ICU for a week in June where he passed. I held out hope until the end. I was with him the whole time. He was 74. I was devastated and still am. My heart is broken. Too top it off I lost my 72 year old mom 11 months before my dad. They were divorced and lived in different states, but I was close to both of them. Hang in there, and if you heed anything let me know. Hugs!!!
