      My sister had lung cancer with mets to the brain.  She had surgery, radiation and chemo and had 2 great years before seeing any recurrence (brain mets, lungs were fine).  She fought a hard fight for another year before she passed on November 4, 2010.  Unfortunately I only found this site a few weeks before she passed.  I have learned so much since then from this site and other possible treatments ...

        One way to get him out of the house is to call an ambulance.  It sounds like his treatment is going to be an emergency anyway if you do not get him to the doctor soon.  The ambulance personnel have wheelchairs and straps and big strong men who can move him.  Maybe if you find a nursing facility that can take him for awhile until you find somewhere else to live they will come to get him, or as I said, a...

            It will be hard to walk down the isle without your Dad.  Maybe your Mom and walk with you and it will help both of you with the pain.  So sorry for your loss.

            My sister, my best friend died 11/4/2010 from lung cancer with mets to the brain. She was diagnosed September 07. She had a tumor removed from her brain, whole head radiation, chemo, focused radiation again to 2 tumors that were regrowing in her brain and then a stroke. At that point there was nothing more that could be done and she was placed with hospice. 5 months in a nursing home until I could bring her home. She passed 2 weeks later.
