Thank You PunkyD. I understand people are realistic, as they should be. No Offense Leonard but I have read your posts and you offer alot of insight to people who want information. That is great but it wouldn't kill you to stop being so negative and angry. Your wife, my father and millions of people suffer and die from cancer and it is sad and horrible. We are left here to continue our lives and I do not beliveve that our loved ones want us to live and breathe cancer until it is our time to go. We are all in god's hands. If you continue to live with negativity and fear and doom it will come to pass. I am going to start by discontinuing my time on cancer compass. This journey is over me. My dad is in heaven now and he is happy and no longer in pain. I love and miss you daddy :-)

They may never find a cure for Bile Duct Cancer but I know plenty of people who beat cancer. It all depends on what kind you have. I will not go through my life bitter because of what happend to my father. I still have hope and encouragement because without that...why bother living.

Thank you for your kind words. I havent been on here in a few weeks. Didn't really want to talk about it. I sure wish they would find a cure so that we can spare others.

Dad died Sunday evening Oct 20th. All I can say is.... my father was given 3 months, three years ago. Chemo can provide some time and relief. Thanks to chemo we got 2 3/4 years more than they said he would. He got to enjoy his family a little longer. Just 6 months ago the entire family took vacation together and dad was feeling well. He took a sudden turn in Sept and 6 weeks later he was gone. He leaves behind a wife of 50 years, 4 daughters, 9 grandchildren, and 3 great grand children. He had a wonderful life and I miss him terrible!!! Love you dad.  

Hello-

I told myself I wasn't going back on here because it was just too hard to talk about. I lost my father at the age of 68 to bole duct cancer on Oct 20, 2013. The last 6 weeks are just  too hard to talk about. I will say this....My father was diagnosed three years ago and they told him he had three months to live. He decided to try chemo even after they told him it doesnt typically help. He never lost his hair and had a pretty good quality of life for 2 1/2 years. He took a sudden turn for the worse and in Early Sept and at the time it was happening it felt like the clock wasnt moving. Now that he is gone...that was the fastest 6 weeks of my life. The entire family traveled and spent time in Nashville just 6 months ago...dad too. I am deeply sorry you are going through this. I understand how you feel. My father too was a strong man. He had a wife of 50 years, 4 daughters, 9 grandchildren and 3 great grand children. I try to hold on to what a wondeful life he had. Take Care.

Thank you so much. My dad is not only the man who raised me but he was my friend, my voice of reason, my hero. I will miss our phone calls. He always used to say...How is my baby today? Even when he was sick he always wanted to know how I was, how my day was going. He never complained. Heaven is getting one remarkable man!!!

Hi Ladylinden-  It's a personal choice to take chemo. It did give my dad a pretty good quality of life for 2.5 years. He is glad it did it.

 

Take Care and I wish you the best.

Leonard-

I forgot to mention my parents live in Kentucky. I live in Pennsylvania. I spent the last week with my dad. I had to return home. I am okay not seeing the final days. The last week was hard enough. I doubt dad wants us to witness what is yet to come. I feel for my mom.

Hello Leonard-

We were told dad has maybe a few days perhaps weeks but will not make it til Halloween. He is turning jaundice and the itching is back. He is filled with fluid and already in heart failure. He has been too week to even sit up for over 3 weeks now. Believe it or not, he isnt in too much pain yet. He can go hours without morphine. He told my mom he has been seeing angels and that he is ready to go. My father is a wonderful man. I pray the lord takes him home soon. This is no way to live for anyone.
