    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Went into hospital with to find out why I had diahrea. Had none of the symptoms of colon cancer. Did a colonoscopy and found tumors. Did a Cat/Pt scan and found that the cancer had spread from my colon into my liver, lymph nodes, lungs and other assorted organs. Cried with my husband and 2 daughters. Then picked myself up. Got rid of the self-pity. Looked at my family and said, we're gonna fight this and man above aint taking me until I'm ready to go. Faith, family and friends. After that, nothing else matters.
