so my son called me tonite. "Did you hear about the shooting?" Me, "yah". Son, "Im in the hospital" "What, you got shot?" "no I have colon cancer" That blows, that really blows...cancer I freakin hate cancer, what did we do wrong? Our oldest son passed 8 1/2 yrs ago leukemia 2 weeks from diagnosis til death, hubby asks do we have another 2 weeks? I am the first to admit I m no Mother Teresa but dangs I love my kids, I love my husband our marriage not perfect but 39 yrs I don't want to be anywhere else with anyone else. Today I went to the school Mass our grand daughter was one of the readers I stopped to buy my daily Bible readings book the nun asked you are "living your faith" my reply I try some days better than others now this. GRRRR My mind runs thoughts together at 90 miles an hour. I called the siblings they come we cry, we don't understand. I try to open a bottle of wine finally we poke the cork inside the bottle gone now it is the cheap champagne and Dominos pizza. Tomorrow maybe the answers?

    believe me, you did nothing wrong. Colon cancer is a scary thing. My husband fought it and won 5 years ago. My cousin, on the other hand, died from it a year ago. The difference is the method of treatment as far as i am concerned. My cousin had resections and chemo/radiation, and the cancer eventually won out. My husband had his entire colon removed and the small intestine was reattached at the bottom (no colon - no colon cancer). His was caught early and surgery was done about a month to two after diagnosis. He did not need any chemo or radiation. The surgery is long and scary, but so worth it if it removes all the cancer. I don't want to scare you & hope he is still doing okay. Just wanted to share my experiences with colon cancer - hope it helps a little.
    Prayers, Marce
