What should I do?
I'm so glad I accidentally stumbled on this forum. Hopefully, I'll be able to receive help with my dilemma.
A friend of mine is terminally ill. When I spoke with him Christmas Eve, he said to come on by for a visit. I spoke with his wife a couple of days ago and she discouraged me from visiting saying that people who visit only stay for short periods. (I understand this as I have experience with other terminally ill friends.) I would dearly love to visit him, even if for a few minutes. (The drive would take over an hour.)
The only way to visit or speak with him to have his wife coordinate things. A mutual friend said it took about 12 or so calls before he received a return call.
Should I continue to press for a visit? Drop it and just hope that perhaps I'll be able to speak with him?
Time is of the essence; when he was diagnosed, he believed things would come to a close mid-January and here we are...
