My grandfather has prostate cancer, alzeimers, and now a blood clot in his brain. I am very close to him. He is the reason I am studying to become a Veterinarean (I grew up with him, and he had an animal sanctuary & I always would help him). Now he is very ill. He is in his 70s. My father flew out to Puerto Rico (we are puerto rico) to see him a couple of days ago, but no one told me he was in the hospital until yesterday. No body seems to want to share the details with me, and it is driving me crazy. My dad told me the doctors don't want him to fall asleep, but I don't understand why. Why is that?

Also, he refuses treatment for his prostate cancer that he has had for 2 years?
I am scared that I will lose him.
Why won't they let him sleep? & is he near death?
He still remembers me, but has trouble remember other people and things. Is the blood clot related to the alzeimers?
