My mum has just been diagnosed with bowel cancer. shes in hospital still and has a long way to go yet. we are all just taking it day by day and trying to stay positive and supportive.
I am worried about my dad. he has always been one to keep to himself and never asks for anything. I know he isn't coping to well and i dont know what to do for him.
I am seeing him daily and calling / texting him to make sure he knows i am here, but i dont know what more i can do.
Some advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance. xx
