    HUGE UP DATE:

    The Test came back My Grandfather is Cancer free and every test is clear. Thank you all who prayed and kept us in your thoughs. I am so happy I cried when My mother called me at work.



    So last week my grandfather had eye surgery and he is recovering fine from that. However,he has been a little pale and weak so my mom took him back to the doctor. The doctor put him in the hospital possible needing to give him some blood. Well come to find out he need a MRI and a colonoscopy. That was done today and what they found out was not good.

    I got a call a few hours ago from my mom that my Grandfather my only living grandparent has Colon Cancer. I lost my other grandfather and a grandmother to cancer as well as a great aunt. while I dont see my grandfather a whole lot he has never been mean or hateful to me or my sister and has always been really good to us. He grew up in a time where men don't show they care till they are older and all. Iono he just had never been super loving but never mean or harsh to us. He always has spoken kindly and gave me and my sister and cousin gifts at christmas and birthdays.

    He is a active church memeber and gave up alchol finally after many years. Not a drunker but just decided to quite.

    I am really very sad about this and I hope the surgery he is going to have within the next few days will get it. I really would like my Paw Paw to be around a little bit longer.


    Please kept us in your prayers and all. thanks

    Has he had colonoscopies done on a regular basis? I've been reading about them and they can remove polyps and other abscesses before they turn into something fierce. Regardless, you have my condolences and hopefully he pulls through.

    Thank you all for the prayer and kind words they mean alot. Hopefully the Doctor will have more helpful info today or tomorrow.



    He is my mother's father and mean a lot to all in our family thank you. My mother is doing ok. She and the rest of us are hoping for the best before the worst.


    I am not sure how often he goes for these. I know he had one a few years ago and it was over all normal.

    My Grandfather has cancer also. I think it is the same cancer or something similar to your grandfather. Anyways he has had it for slightly over a year and is doing fine on chemo and is in good health. So it may seem scary now but give it time. Hopefully your Grandfather pulls threw.

    I hope your grandfather, and anyone else on this thread with cancer pulls through it ok. Having been through cancer too myself, I can kinda understand what you're going through, Ecchokat; hope you're gonna be ok too!
