I’m laying here wide awake thinking about the week I’ve had and hoping some bees have some positive stories to help me stay optimistic. At the beginning of this week I was getting ready to turn 32, happily planning my wedding, and helping to plan my baby sister’s wedding as her Maid/Matron of Honor. By Wednesday I was crying almost every minute. My Dad has been having some stomach issues, but nothing too serious. His dr sent him in for a colonoscopy just to make sure and we found out he has colon cancer that has gone a little bit over to his liver.
Now the drs seem very optimistic that he’s healthy and a fighter but all that I can keep thinking of is that I want him to see me in my wedding dress, say I do, meet his grandkids, etc and I’m so worried it might not happen. My fiance has been amazing but I just need some encouragement/advice/anythiNG positive. Sorry this post is all over the place. I’m emotionally exhausted and drained.

My uncle has had liver, colon, skin, and Hodgkin’s, plus he’s diabetic and a bad heart since birth. Doctors now say he’s a healthy 60 year old man with a good long healthy life in front of him. Treatments these days are amazing! I’m sure hell be around to see your kids get married. Keep your chin up and I’ll keep you all in my thoughts.

I’m sorry about your pop.
Colon cancer is one of the most treatable cancers. It has become very “routine” for doctors, so there is a good chance he’ll fight it out.

I know it’s tough — particularly when the ‘C’ word get thrown into your life, but it’s incredibly important to iisten to the doctors. They aren’t going to give you false hope if there isn’t hope to be had. It helps you remember that each and every day is a gift. He listened to his body, and they caught it before it started causing major issues.
Stay strong, and it’ll help him do the same.
