the hospice care people give him about 4 days. most likely by the weekend he'll be gone. the funeral arrangements have already been made... (which I find a little weird.... but I guess they want to make the whole transition go as smoothly as possible). I am not sure how I feel about this. He's in late stages of lung cancer. I haven't seen him in 6 years by his choice. A month ago my husband went to see him with his siblings to say their good byes. I didn't have the opportunity to go and I spoke to him briefly on the phone once. I don't even know why I'm posting this because I'm not asking any questions and I'm not looking for sympathy. I guess I just needed to get it off my chest in a way.
