I've been away from the boards for well...12 days because my DH who's 32 was diagnosed with appendix cancer (very rare and aggressive form) and he had his second surgery and began his chemo in these past two weeks. I've been at the hospital with him most of the time.
He had a lot of complications and after the surgery they found more cancer on his colon. This has all been devastating and nightmarish.
His chemo began several days ago but he developed a bad bacterial colon infection - C. Diff - which is serious and was finally the last straw for me in terms of having to leave, specifically because of the pregnancy.
I'm home now, without him as he's still in the hospital. His family and my family are helping a lot. This is the most overwhelmed and sad I have ever felt in my life.
Please pray for him, me, and the baby. Whenever the pain feels like too much or he doesn't want to eat anymore, I tell him to keep fighting for the baby, and that works. I'll keep you guys posted.
