Topic: Mom diagnosed with colon cancer
I got the news from my dad that mom had been diagnosed with colon cancer. Mom is 78, dad is 84, they had their 50th anniversary early in May.
Mom felt anemic for the last few months. She finally went to see a doctor in June. Doctor ordered a number of tests, including colonoscopy. The colonoscopy found a tumor. Biopsy confirmed that it's cancer. That's all I know at the moment. Mom is going for a scan in a few days. I guess we will find out more once the scan results are back. Tumor stage, surgery options, etc.
The news sapped all energy out of me. First my wife, now my mom. I feel chewed and spit out. No emotions. Just numbness.
