Today my dad’s doctors informed him that they are stopping chemo. He is too weak. He has lost 95 lbs since the winter.

He will begin in-home hospice care soon.

I’m at work trying not to lose my shit. 5 more hours.

This is my dad and niece two years ago.

Update: Thank you for all your kind words. I haven’t replied individually because I’m still at work (lunch break now.)

About staying at work: I’m in SF and my family is outside Portland, Oregon. I just got back from there a week ago. I already have tickets for the 29th, but I’m going to see if I can fly up sooner. I’ve already drained my vacation hours and need to help them financially, so Im trying to strike a balance between being there with them and working.

I’m holding it together.

He only got diagnosed 7 weeks ago to the day.
