How do I deal with a father-in-law, whom has terminal cancer?


My father-in-law finally went to the doctor a few months ago, he had to quit his job due to the side-effects of prostate cancer, now spread throughout his body because he also neglected going to the doctor and dealing with it -for numerous reasons. He's been a depressed, mostly recovered alcoholic whom had a rough growing up, and was very rough on my wife when she was growing up. I like the guy, he has his character, he's redeemed himself, but I feel so frustrated knowing what is coming and what my wife will have to go through, which all could have been prevented if he had only gone in sooner.
