Truly, thank you for the sweet comments and emails. Today was probably one of the hardest days I have ever had, but we are joyous!! The test results are in and although my husband does indeed have a very large cancerous tumour, it has NOT spread like the Doctors had feared initially. They are all quite surprised about this result but we are so relieved. The survival rates decrease exponentially with colon cancer if the cancer has spread to other organs. Thank you for all the prayers that went up for my husband and our family, you have been heard! We await a surgery date and are hopeful that this can be dealt with quickly and with good end results. We are not out of the woods yet because we need lymph node pathology results to give a final "stage" to the cancer and determine follow up treatment, so please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
