    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    I am my husband's unexpected caregiver, as of December 14th when he was diagnosed TOTALLY unexpectedly with Stage IV Colon Cancer. My dear husband and I are "living" this terrible dream and can't wake up. I have been searching for a site where I could communicate with others who are going through the same heart breaking experience. I hope I have found it here.

    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My husband was diagnosed on Dec 14th with colon cancer. He now has a ileostomy. On Jan 4th he was admitted with intense back and chest pains. He was rushed to the ER where it was discovered that he had large blood clots in bot of his lungs. We went home from the hospital on Jan 9th. A couple of days later he was found to have his first ever bladder infection. Then today while driving his car, he was rear ended!!! Life just can't get any "better" for him! God you can stop laughing now, enough is enough!!!
