I’m so sorry for everything you and your family are going through. I have been down this road before with family members and you ARE strong and don’t question your feelings. You are right, stay AWAY from Google; your Dad’s fate is not in there. Trust the doctors, be his advocate when you’re there, and never be afraid to cry. Life is scary but it doesn’t always mean the end. Things that are inoperable, if that does end up being the case, still have many options. Wishing you love and positive vibes.

My dad was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer 2 months ago, went through surgery and is going through chemo now.  Message me if you wanna talk!! 

Stay away from google and THINK POSITIVE!! I know that’s easier said than done but it does help I believe.  

Hugs!!

My heart aches for you and your family. Cancer is a C U Next Tuesday (yes I am using that word coz I hate it that much) however it is curable and I’ll be thinking of your father in my thoughts that he gets through this! He WILL get through this, he sounds like an amazing brave man.

thesecondwife :  I don’t believe in the whole ‘stay away from google’ idea unless you are the type that freaks out over everything you could read. I like being informed and knowing facts. A lot of the information you can find online about cancer and other statistics is beneficial and educational. Hiding under a rock and ignoring what could happen won’t make the diagnosis go away.

My husband was diagnosed with cancer a year ago December 29th. We are 32. The tumor was removed and he didn’t have to do chemo. His one year scan is in February and I’m hoping everything will be good and he can continue surveillance every 6 months.

It feels like your entire world has fallen out from underneath you. It feels weird and surreal and you have about 5 seconds when you wake up in the morning where you forget it happened before you remember and then you deal with it all over again. 

This isn’t the end of the road for your dad but it will be a hard road and it could have many different outcomes. You don’t have to be strong for people, stuffing emotions away is detrimental. Feel your feelings so they don’t bring you down. Cancer is curable and he could come out of this just fine, but the important thing is he wants to fight and he has a support system. Hang in there.

I’m so sorry. My best advice is spend all the time with him you can during this time, even if it’s just sitting on the couch together, you will never regret it. Sending love.

I know just how hard & devastating it is to hear this news about a parent bc my dad also has stomach cancer though his is a rare slow growing type it still really scares me every single day just the same.

Stay away from google & think positive. 

Sending you lots of love & hugs bee!
