My Dad was diagnosed with State 3 Colon Cancer back in August. He went through the surgery fine and is undergoing chemo. He is now halfway through the twelve treatments. For the most part, he is tolerating them well.
This has been so hard for me to deal with. Like everyone else, I never imagined that this would happen to my loved one. It is all so scary and I feel like I am in a whole different world where nothing seems certain anymore. I get so scared everytime he goes for his treatments and worry about all the side effects that might happen. I think I am most scared about losing him. That thought is unbearable.
I am also really worried about my Mother. This has been so hard on her. I can only imagine how she feels watching the love of her life go through all of this.
I just need for somebody to give me some words of wisdom and some positive thoughts as to how to deal with all this. My husband has been so great but somehow his positive words are not catching on.
