Life Strikes Again

FI just found out his father was diagnosed with colon cancer and it's of the genetic variety :(

Doctors think they caught it early enough for it to be taken care of but what a shock.  I wish FI and I weren't on opposite sides of the world right now so I could comfort him in person rather than through Skype :(

    Oh damn! Im soo sorry! My dad went through this last Christmas. I'm due for getting a check up too since his was also the genetic kind.  He'll beat it!! Doctors are amazing and work true wonders.  You guys are also in my thoughts and prayers!

    Thanks :)

    I'm just so thankful that it was caught in the early stage and it doesn't appear to have spread.  He'll be going in next week to start treatment.

    I am so sorry to hear about the diagnosis. Several members in my family have been diagnosed with this as well & I have to go every few years for the routine checks to make sure that I dont have any of the symptoms/signs. It is a very scary time but like pp---things are alot different now in the medical field and at least it was diagnosed early enough & hasnt spread. My thoughts & prayers are with you & FIs family.
