OP im so so sorry to read your post.
I really feel for you and your family, I’ve been there my mum was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer at aged 58, she passed away 18 weeks later - it’s a horrible and a particularly cruel cancer IMO. All I can say is spend as much time with your dad as you can, look after Yousef and worry about everything else after its all over – you’ll never get this time back again XX
Just on your dad's care – we were very lucky as we were able to care for my mum at home until she passed away – just so you know OP you are entitled to 10 days of full nursing care (without charge) though the Irish cancer society – this will be arranged to palliative care but if you need it insist on it. We had it for my mum and it meant the world. The nurse were amazing and so kind – I didn’t think the same of the HSE palliative care nurse if im brutally honest.
My husband’s dad passed away at home too from cancer and didn’t have a nurse present it was very distressing for the family. So insist on the Irish cancer society nurses.
If you have any pancreatic cancer questions… just let me know – its spread to my mums liver too OP.. it really is a dreadful cancer im afraid.
Take care and try and be strong XX
Thanks for the message, cannot tell you how grateful I am. I am going to contact the Irish Cancer society now, I never realised these resources were available.
