My dad is passing away

Ruby08

we have just found out that my dads cancer is terminal and he most likely has 6 months left, with a maximum of 12 months. This has made me so sad and I wish the world would just stop so I could focus just on him and preparing myself emotionally and financially for when he’s no longer here. I don’t live with my parents so I’m finding it really hard to work out how much to visit them. On the one hand I want to spend time with dad, but I also don’t want him to feel like I’m around all the time because he doesn’t have long left. I’m also feeling guilty when I have a free day and I’m not spending it with him.

How have other people planned to spend time with a parent when they know it’s their last few months?
