Ted just edited this down- I'm too much from the oversharing generation, and this was apparently more private info.
I've been spending a lot of time with Don, my father-in-law, who seems to have a lot to say during his last few days here on earth. Watching Don die has really been an eye-opening experience. His cancer is extensive and he's not able to eat. We've managed to force a couple teaspoons of applesauce down him each day - but he really has trouble with that. He's getting fluids through a tube, but can't drink anything. They didn't expect him to live, but he's a fighter. I think he's got another week of energy left. Sometimes he can take communion... other times not.
Prayers are requested for Don and Ken's wife Cathy.
