Hi Biris Sorry to hear about your dad. While I can't say I know what it's like to deal with a baby and a dying parent, I can empathise somewhat. My dad passed away from terminal liver cancer 6 years ago now and my mother has just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and opting for quality of life with myself as the main carer. Dad's case was possibly an untreated case of hep c when he was a child. If you would like to talk about it anytime, I'm willing to listen if you like. I found that there was very little support groups in the way of liver cancer. My dad fought it for 18 months. Please be gentle with yourself and ask for help from friends with the baby.

Thanks KJ Sorry for the delay in response. It looks like Mum is going for the quality of life option rather than treatment. Admittedly I'm struggling with that, even though I know full well it's her decision. In truth, I'd probably opt for the same thing if I was in her shoes. Trying to put on a brave face for Mum, but very hard to keep it together when I'm by myself. Feel bad that I can't be as fully supportive at the moment as I should. Though she did only tell me last night.
