Yes SILLY they did think it would be easier to come to us and Im quite relieved that they are coming here. But Im also anxious, I dont want him to end up in hospital here.
I just spoke to Mum who thinks Dad is consuming more of the high calorie, high energy drinks and has eaten a little of some pureed casserole the last couple of days so her opinion is that he is doing better. I understand Kasianne that it must be annoying to have people pushing you to eat all the time when it is so uncomfortable. I know my Dad has gotten cross with Mum pushing him to eat but it is done out of love. Its just so frustrating for those watching I guess.

Hi Im new here. My father who lives in New zealand was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his esophagus 4 weeks ago. He then had a scan which revealed the cancer has spread to his gullet and live,they have given him an estimate on his life span.
I am in Australia so my parents have booked flights to come over next week to spend a week with me and my family. Im worried that he is not going to be well enough to travel or end up in hospital here as he is not eating. It is painful to eat and the doctor has now given him some morphine to help with pain. I am new to cancer and really dont know what to expect but if he is not eating now surely its not a good idea to make the trip in a weeks time???
