I am so sorry. Sending hugs and prayers for strength. The Lord is still God and all is in His hands. I just lost my dear husband and am trying to make sense of things. If you need someone to talk to you can always spark mail me.

So very sorry to hear your dad is going through such a difficult time. Has he tried Ensure? He could maybe take a spoonful here and there, just to get something in him. Maybe sip some broth from chicken noodle soup ~ not eat anything solid, just sip the broth to see if he can keep it down. If he took just a little at a time, he might be able to keep it down and benefit from it more.

Keeping all of you in prayer

Hello all new to group. My dad has always had heartburn for as long as i can remember. For the last 2-3 months he has been worse. Everything he ate came back up. He just didn't want to eat in fear he would get sick. Well he was going to the VA for health care because his job closed last year(worked there for 40 years)So he complained to them and they scheduled him for a endoscope that was 3 months away. So my sisters and myself harassed my dad every day to go to a "real" dr. And he finally did the second week of april. The dr scheduled an end for 2 days later. So he went to hospital as outpatient and they did an the end. and found a large tumor at the base of his esophagus. Did a biopsy and found stage 4 cancer.... Since then he's been in an out of the hospital because he having a very hard time eating. Any one have any experience with this type let me know. We could really use some help with tryin go get him to eat.
Thanks for listening
Kim
