Re: My Dads diagnosis

Absolutely Alison, you are very right. Not everyone is the same, or we would all be robots.
Only you knew your Dad, and how he felt, and what he was 'capable' of hearing and dealing with.

When my Dad had the stroke, he couldn't move, or speak but his mind was fully there. The Oncologist wanted to tell him there was nothing more they could do for him. I told him he was welcome to speak to Dad, but not to say that. Dad knew what was happening, he didn't need the added stress of it being pointed out to him.

We wasn't treated as bad as you and your poor Dad, we only had bad treatment from the GP and the Macmillan nurse.
You probably have a very tough fight ahead. They look after their own, I've seen and read a lot of that. But so do we Alison. I will always fight my Dad's corner, always. I know you will too. Your Dad will be so proud of you.
