This isn't really about me, it is about my wife who was diagnosed on 10/22/12 with colon cancer that has spread to her liver, stomach and small spots on her lungs. As no surprise, this was a huge blow to us. Our whole life has been turned upside down. She has had 2 cycles of chemo, with a pump to take home for two days. for a total of 48 hours of treatment.Her treatments are 2 weeks apart. Her doctor told us just this monday on her latest treatment that there is no cure for her cancer, that they will try to maintain it and hope it will shrink. She is in constant pain, has very little energy and still seems to be in shock. I guess I am still in shock, as well as being scared to death.Our once future plans seems to be gone. It hurts so bad, but I have to be strong for her. She is not only my wife but my best friend. I don't know what I would do if I lost her. I don't know where else to turn, I would like some answers to my questions, but I am afraid to ask the doctor them in front of my wife. I don't want to upset her anymore.
