    OH and myself have both have had bad colds, well Tuesday night I was really ill and was taken into hospital when OH came to see Wednesday Morning and nearly fainted so they have so decided to admitted him. They have done a scan on him and found a cancerous tumor just above the bowel, they said with the size of it they believe it been growing for about 2 years. So now his seeing the surgeon tomorrow to talk about where we go from here. So I'm back home on my own worried to death.

    Sorry just needed someone to talk to as it there's is only the two of us.

    Oh My. I hope the prognosis is good. Your lovely hubby, how is he coping?

    Do you feel better health wise?

    As always, if you need to chat, I'm here. I'm dealing with something similar with a life long friend

    I am so sorry to hear this awful news; you must feel devastated. The positive thing is that he came to see you in hospital and was seen as soon as he felt bad and had a scan (otherwise he might still be on a waiting list). I wish you both well.

    Oh HP I'm so sorry, I hope he is ok and that you are ok, my best friends Mum was diagnosed with a bowel cancer, she had the lump removed and a colostomy bag fitted, didn't have the chemo as she had one round and didn't do well with it but she is screened every 6 months and she is still clear 5 years later and is living life completely and fully.

    So sorry. Thinking of you. I know exactly how you are feeling and my heart goes out to you.
    Let it all out, then dig in deep and weather the storm. Fight the good fight with everything you have.
    People beat the beast and I’m rooting for your hubby.
