Hi, I am new to this board and not sure if this is the right place to post. My son is 3 and my husband was just diagnosed with stage 4B pancreatic cancer. The avg. lifespan after diagnosis is 7.5 months. He is not sure if he will try chemo or not because of the quality of life he may have.
My question is how in the heck do you prepare a toddler for something like death that he doesn't even understand? Let alone why he cant see his daddy anymore.
Any feedback will be appreciated. Books, links, articles, anything. I put in a call to our hospitals cancer support group today and am sure I will get some help there as well.
