I am so sorry for your loss. May you find strength in the good memories.
Went in for surgery for a cyst on my bladder, and they found colon cancer growing on the outside of the colon. Got to have two surgeries at the same time! Stage 3, one node involved.

Reading the title of your post took my breath away. Reading it brings tears to my eyes. I can't begin to express my tremendous sympathy to you and your family. I am just so sorry for your loss. Knowing how devoted you were to him through it all helps soften the blow just a bit. He was not alone. He was loved - very loved.
