No advice here either but I couldn't read this and not offer huge hugs to you and your brother and family.

I'm sorry to hear this.
My dad's cancer started in his lymph nodes back in 2001. He made it to early last year relatively well until he started getting the severe back and chest pain and numbness down one side. In may he got diagnosed with lung cancer. He was on a long list of pain meds and not having a very good quality of life. Unfortunately it was very agesssive and he passed away in august, he was 59. It was only once my mum got his death certificate that we found out the cancer had spread much much more than the drs told us. It was in some of his organs and spine as well.
It makes me angry they advised him to go through radiation knowing full well it wouldn't work or give him more time. It just caused him more pain. I think it's wrong and cruel they didn't disclose to him just how far it had spread. Giving him false hope that the radiation was shrinking the lung tumour. Anyway sorry I'm rambling, it's still very raw for me and i have not properly grieved or dealt with his loss yet. I had my baby 3 weeks after he passed.
I'm sending big hugs.
My only advice is spend as much time with him as possible.

We had been told he had a few months but i think he'd just had enough of the pain and decided he wanted to go.
I think it's absurd he has to wait so long. The hospital down here stuffed my dad around too. He was of the impression that because he was a smoker he wasn't a priority. I think now it's because there was no hope so they didn't rush. They even told him his cancer was a different type to the one he had.
I'm so disillusioned by the medical system in our country.

Well we just got the news we weren't wanting to hear. They've given him a couple of months at most. He cannot move his legs at all, not even a centimetre. He is scheduled for a bone scan but the oncologist is sure it has gone to his bones & bowel also. I'm heartbroken for him, surely losing a 10 week old to SIDS is enough suffering for one person. Im heartbroken for my mum because no one should watch their child go, I'm heartbroken for my son because at just 3 he probably won't remember this beautiful, gentle man with a quirky sense of humour who is his uncle & I'm heartbroken for me because I love my big brother & I'm nowhere near ready to say goodbye.
