Shortly after I found out I had bugs, my dad (who had been sick for about a year) finally let his doctor talk him into getting some tests.

My stepmother and I are still kind of pissed that he didn't do anything until a MAN told him he should, but anyway..

We found out he had a tumor on the back of his tongue.

They put a feeding tube in, he went on a special diet, then radiation and chemo.

Then he got pneumonia. He was in the hospital for a week.

He kept getting dehydrated though.

Like 2 days before his last chemo treatment, my dad fell down on his way back from the bathroom. He didn't have the strength to get back up.

We had to call an ambulance because we couldn't get him up the stairs ourselves.

Turns out he had pneumonia again, plus almost no white blood cells.

But this time he hasn't really been getting better. I feel like he's been there three weeks now, but I'm kinda fuzzy on that. He can't breathe on his own and he has some sort of shitting infection.

And today we are supposed to have a "family meeting" at the hospital.

Anyway, that's the news from the split-level. I hope this is readable. I got a few hours of sleep last night, but now whenever I lie down I just start sobbing uncontrollably.
