He almost gave up during the last few months and I forced him from my own work, so he is doing much better now since hes 80 years old. I will see him soon once I'm healthy enough to fly to see him too.
My grandfather went in about 10 days ago with pneumonia. During the CAT scan it was revealed he also had stage 4 lung cancer. We were told it could be anywhere from 2 months to a year, as at 90 there is nothing they can do.
He waited until all the family had a chance to see him this week and passed away yesterday morning. He knew it was his time and was ready. I'm glad he didn't suffer and passed peacefully in his sleep. He will be missed but he was a great man that lived a full, wonderful life.
I wish you all the best in your ongoing fight. That is amazing that you are able to help your grandfather fight through this with your own battle as inspiration. Good luck.
