Patient :My dad is 60 years old. Recently he was wearing a monitor for is breathing. He made a comment that he would be suprised if he made it another year. Also, he mentioned that his oxygen levels are low. My dad smokes, drinks, and chews. He works everyday and is always doing something. I am worried about his health and I dont know how much longer he truly has. My parents don't tell me much about his health to keep me from worrying. What do you think?
