Oh man… Announced as 7 min read, it took me way longer to actually read it… Just can say that your father was lucky to be able to make that choice. We had a smilar situation with my mum, she had to fight for three years. Had to go through a pneumonectomy and another surgery at her brain, which all worked out well but there was nothing that stopped that freaking disease… As we live in Germany there is no such thing as the aid-in-dying law, we could only wait until the very end. Which is not easy at all…
Anyway… I wish you and your family the very best, lots of strength in order to get through that difficult time. They say time heals all wounds, which is not the case, but it gets better with time.
Thanks for sharing, it was really touching!
Now you have a guardian angel protecting you from above!
