Last days with my dad

In the beginning of this year, my dad suffered a very serious stroke. While recovering in the hospital, the doctors found severe pancreatic cancer that has already moved into his liver and spleen. Surgery was not an option because of the extent of it, and there wasn't much chemotherapy could do, but make him sick in whatever time he has left.
My dad has lived in Sweden since 2004, so my time with him since then has been very limited. I was fortunate to be able to spend a week there last month and I was hopeful that he had at least a year left, but things are progressing very quickly that it's not looking like we have much time. Flights to Sweden are extremely expensive, and this last trip really put us behind financially and if I could at least get over there for the funeral, it would really mean a lot to say goodbye. Thank you for all your help and support, from the bottom of my heart.
