Change of Plans

We traveled 700 miles to spend time with family. The trip was hard and took longer than usual because of heavy thunderstorms. But, we arrived safely and were thankful. My pain has become severe and it’s not letting up after two days. I guess it’s going to take longer to get over the trip.

After we were halfway through our trip, my husband got test results that said his Colo-Gard was positive. That really got us both depressed. He already has Stage 4 Prostate Cancer, and now there’s a possibility of having colon, too.

Instead of me staying for a long visit, the two of us will probably go home Monday. He’ll have to have a colonoscopy now. He’s very afraid of what they might find. I’m worried about it, too. We’re praying very hard about this.

Pain

We are trying to put it out of our minds, because there’s a possibility that it could be a false positive. Oh, I really hope so! We also are putting on a happy face as we go to see our grandchildren. The smiles are authentic, because grandchildren are young and oh so cute!

The hormone treatment I’m receiving is bioidentical and all I have to do is place two drops on my wrist. It soaks into my skin and I hope it’s going to start doing something good for me. The doctor said it could take a while to get the full effect. So far, I don’t feel any effect. I’m waiting patiently, but really I feel desperate for some energy.

I’m just dragging myself along. If I was at home, I would be lying down and doing nothing. I don’t have any energy at all. I’m forcing myself to shower and fix my hair. It’s so hard!

I hope that you all are having a better day. I hope that you have some energy and that your pain levels are down. We all want to feel good.

  1. Oh I will definitely be hoping and praying that it’s a false negative and the colonoscopy has good news for you both.

  2. So sorry you have the added worry now about your husband, Praying he will receive good news after his test and hoping you’ll be able to rest and feel better!
