Hi. My dad was just diagnosed with lung cancer a few weeks ago. I wasn't aware of the types and stages so I'm not sure what he's at. All i know is they said it's treatable, and I don't think it's spread. He had a bone test, and it's clear. He started radiation last week. I went to visit this weekend(he live 3 1/2 hours from me) and he seemed to be in better spirits than the last time I saw him. Although he wasn't looking or feeling too well. I cried the whole way home. I spoke to him last night and he told me he lost consciouness and fell on his face. He went to the doctor and they told him he has fluid in his lungs(I think he is getting it removed tomorrow?) He just sounded so beat down and depressed. Last night was the first night I completely broke down and bawled like a baby. I can't talk to my family(mother, brother,sister) about it, because I want comfort, not give comfort, - is that selfish? I know they are equaly upset about it, but I don't want to see them cry
It's hard to talk about, I am so sad, but writing this down makes me feel better.
I needed to get this out.
