My Darling Husband has his operation tomorrow,bowel cancer,has completed chemo and r/therapy.
Had to have stent put in for kidney stones last week, another issue to be addressed next year.
He is to have a permanent stoma, as the tumor is too low down to be resectioned, then more chemo.
He's putting on a brave face,but sometimes the cracks appear.
He knows that we are all here for him.
It's not going to be easy but together we will do it.

my Husband was diagnosed with stage II rectal carcenoma in September this year.
At first we just crawled into our shells and telling our children and family was terrifying.
Tests tests and more tests.
5 weeks of chemo via picc line and radiation every day for the same.
Also kidney stones need to be removed surgically.
Unfortunately as the tumor is so low down resection is not possible,so it is a permanent Stoma.
His surgery is in 2weeks then more chemo.
He has some days that are ok and some Not ok.He tries to keep positive at times it is a struggle.I need to talk to someone about what to expect next.
We were always close but this has bought us even closer.
