My wife has been fighting colon cancer for almost 2 years now. She's been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. She has had a colostomy and parts of her colon and small intestine removed. She is going through chemo once again with hopes of stopping the cancer spreading. I've watched her go from 155 pounds down to 100 pounds over this past year. She is always tired from the treatments and combined with other side effects deals with pain, and diarrhea. sp? Anyway, I have tried to deal with this as much as possible but I find myself so depressed at times. I wish so much that I could do more for her, but I have no idea what else there is to do. I keep up the house, bills, animals, and anything else she desires or needs. Although no one has said she is beyond help, they aren't saying anything positive either. I would sell everything I own to hear some good news from anyone concerning her. I'm just so depressed at times it's hard to keep up the positive front. I find my heart in my throat and eyes swelling up. Tomorrow she will have a cat scan done on her spine, because they are worried that the cancer is moving there. Does anyone know if that is fatal? I look to the lord for hope and pray she is healed or at least does not suffer much. I dont have many people I can talk to for advice or to just talk. If anyone cares enough I would love to hear from someone who has gone through this or is going through this now.
