Dear Mojo & other caregivers,
I feel it is long due that I post A Big Big Big Thank You to everyone who has posted here!!!
March 18 2016 my hubby had an emergency surgery due to total block of his colon. And he got a colostomy. They said a tumor was blocking. That was his 1st symptom.
From then on I searched info all over.. and a couple of days later I found Colon Club and this thread, "Wife's of.."
I read & read. And read. For some reason I remember I was on page 63 when we for sure knew hubby had a malignant tumor. (You do hope for a miracle.. that it is benign). Do not remember which page I was on when we were told it was stage IV. Anyway I read all 223 pages, that this thread included at the time. I felt everyone's worry & hope & I felt joy when reading good news & Big Sadness when bad things happened...
Thank You All so much for sharing,
For making me feel prepared/for knowledge regarding what might happen, for making me feel prepared for a bad outcome and yet still keeping my hope for a good!
My hubby has now had his resection of the primary tumor, his stomi is gone and Sept 1st he had his surgery to remove the mets in his liver. No news yet of the surgery- & pathology report..
We are Not living in a country where our 1st language is spoken, (it is actually our 3rd language), that is an extra burden/hardship at a time like this. But we are coping & are very thankful for the care we are getting.
Sorry for many words - I just wanted to say:
THANK YOU !!!!!
Kind Regards /LPL
P.S. Sorry if I have used some wrong words, English is my 2nd language.
