I actually called my mom on the phone last night instead of just IM. We must have talked for 2 hours, very unusual for me as I hate talking on the phone.

aawww :) these kinds of things really make you think don't they. In a heartbeat everything can change and the things you take for granted can easily be in jeopardy.

Im kinda touched to think that my situation is affecting people half way around the world. Touched and humbled :)

I'm so sorry, I miss my Aunt who passed away from this every day. I was really close to her, and the last thing I said to her...I grunted...I was DUMB! Oh gosh.....I still visit her often and tell her how much I love her! I tell her everything that's going on, or at least try too.....

I hope all goes well for you, and hope that technology has increased in the last five years...since my aunt had lung cancer.

My prayers are with you and everyone else dealing with cancer.
thank you :) I havent been checked yet but seeing as the source of bowel cancer can be hereditary I will be going to the doc next week

I'm so sorry that this had to happen to you. It should never happen to anyone!

Prayers are out for your family from all of us!

Wow... I am soo sorry.

Right now I am experiencing the first illness to go through my family that I actually remember. My grandma was diagnosed about a year ago with lung cancer. The doctors did some surgery and all was well until it spread to her brain and since then everything has gone down hill. It was so terrible going to see her and just watch her skinny face stare at the ceiling and not know who I was, who my brothers were, or even her own son. I wanted to do something but there wasn't anything I could do. Now its really sad because she still has the cancer but she is talking again as of last week. She is feeding herself, talking on the phone and being absolutely coherent. She is always talking about how she wishes she could get out of this place. Unfortunately about 5 months ago the doctors said she would only love for 6 months. I guess this is just the calm before the storm....

Just thought I would update everyone.

Mum saw the specialist on friday and while the tumour is larger than they originally thought, it is all contained to the bowel and the specialist is very confident that he can remove it all and that she can make a full recovery.

She starts radio therapy next week which will go for 5 weeks and then she has 6 weeks of chemo. Then she has the operation and after 6 weeks, she goes onto 3 months of chemo. Apparently they are finding that people who undergo both radio and chemo have a higher chance of complete recovery and less chance of it coming back. It will prob take about 12 months all up for the treatment to be over but it seems very positive at this stage :) I can breathe again! I don't think I've taken a full breathe for a week and a half now

Thanks guys for all your support and help :) hopefully everything will be A-OK :)

Glad you can breath now. Your mom has a rough year to get through. Is the radio the same as radioactive iodine therapy? My father in law had to have that and it wasnt too bad except not being able to be around anyone (he was actually radioactive) The Chemo has been a real bugger for him but his last cancer count was almost normal. :) Still wishing the best for your mom :)
