Mike, thank you for your reply. My dad is still strong. He actually cut his own grass this past Saturday. He said he had to rest a couple of times but he managed to get it done. He is already experiencing some of the final symptoms. Has jaundice, itching, dark colored urine and clay colored stools. He is not in any pain and hopefully will not be. It is hard to believe that this is happening. How is your dad? Has he started the final symptoms yet? Any pain? Sleeping a lot? My dad's hospice nurse's father died with this same illness and she said that he slept alot in the end and peacefully passed away. That is what I hope for my dad. How old is your dad? My dad is 80 and never been sick or in the hospital. Bless you and your family.
