You have my sympathy. It's a weird time, a feeling of being in limbo, waiting for the end, dreading it at the same time. When mum was in the hospital, I dreaded seeing her so frail, but, ironically, when I was home, I was thinking: At least she is still alive. Your feelings will be all over the place. We have been there, all of us on here, and we understand.@CWR dad's oncologist said the same, she said he had only done so well because of the excellent support that he had at home. Whether it was true or not will never be known.
We have now reached the same place as where @myss dad was and I don't think that however wonderful the support that dad gets, it will not be enough to keep him going. There is a time that comes when it is inevitable as the body can not keep going and we all need to accept that however hard and it is hard however old and ill they are.
We just want to make things better for them but sometimes the alternative is better. So very very hard.
