My father has been on hospice for a month now. The first couple of weeks he was able to move around, to some extent, on his own. As of last Friday, my father is now bedridden and unable to communicate. The nurses are now visiting on a daily basis and say we are very close.
I sit with him every day. I talk to him, tell him I love him, play oldies and native music.
Luckily, he is not in any pain. He seems very comfortable. Hospice has been extremely helpful with that.
I want to thank everyone for donating, for their prayers and support. It help us so much and made this difficult time a little bit less stressful.
****** UPDATE ******
Yesterday, July 19, 2017, my father had another CT scan. It showed the cancer is spreading and the current masses are growing. His last CT scan was just last month. My father is flying to San Diego next week and will be living with me and my husband. We will care for him and try to make his days as comfortable as possible. Thank you to everyone that has donated and shared our page. Truly, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
My name is Cirila Walker. I created this page for my father Fred Trujillo. He was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer, which has spread to both lungs. The doctors can only help in prolonging his life and making him as comfortable as possible. We were advised he may have as little as a few months up to maybe a year.
My father is 63 years old and lives in a small town in northern California called Clearlake Oaks. My father has limited means and the nearest cancer center is over an hour away. I will be moving my father to San Diego, where I live, so I can care for him. In San Diego, he will be closer to his first and only newborn granddaughter, and additional family and friends. He will also be closer to Moore's Cancer Center at USDC, a well-known cancer center.
The money raised here will be used to help move my father to San Diego, to help care for my father, and to help pay for his final expenses. Money donated will be deposited into an account set up specifically for my father's care.
