From my experience: going through all of this with Paul, and what we have been through over the last year - just be there. Be there to love both of your parents. Be there to help them decipher information when it all becomes too overwhelming. Let them be depressed, upset, angry and then kick the in the hiney when they stay on the pity-potty too long. And, sometimes they will wnat you to climb up on the potty with them. That's okay - just don't get comfortable there. We encountered so many emotions and feelings - some you expect, some you don't. But what I think they will need the most from you is your unconditional love and support. Depend on your own support network to get through all of your stuff, so that you can be there for them. Paul used to send me off to work saying, "Let your friends love on you today - you need that too." So, I would - I didn't try too hard to be brave and strong. I let them support me too. Best of luck to you as you face the road ahead.
