preparing for Superman's departure

3 years ago my superman was diagnosed with wilms tumor, a kidney cancer common in young kids. He went through about 8 months of chemo and radiation. He was in remission for about 6 months. In October of 2014 our fears came true, his cancer had returned. After more radiation and intense chemo we found out the cancer had spread. We were lucky enough to be part of a trial but after only one treatment found out he was no longer eligible due to the tumor growing. Our worst fears came true... My superman is now on hospice (with no estimated time to live) he is very weak, and tired. He has some energy left but its nothing compared to how active and outgoing my superman was before. Myself and my family are asking for this help for any funeral cost and expenses that might come up to make sure Nathan has everything he needs to stay comfortable and happy. Thank you.

I want to thank everyone for their support through this it has helped out so much.

***Update on Superman***
The nurse came today and said that his right lung has some air passing through, but the tumor is definitely pushing on it. He is very sleepy and is now hilusinating (sorry if its spelt wrong) my baby is still drinking a lot of fluids which is good. Thank you everyone for your continued prayers and support it means a lot.

*** Another Update.. ***
The nurse came for a visit today and Superman's lungs sound clear, his oxygen is good and he's still drinking. Our Superman's journey has definitely begun.. From what the nurse said is that if he continues on this path (common path basically) he has 6-7 days. Although there is a chance that the tumor or something else can cause that to change and shorten. He is comfortable and resting most of the time. Thank you all again for everything..
