Hi. I just found this site and it looked encouraging. My mom was just diagnosed with colon cancer last Friday. Found out it is stage 3a. She had a colon resection on Monday. She was supposed to be discharged today but had a fever. She is starting chemotherapy in 4 weeks. I am feeling so overwhelmed - I have 2 young kids at home. I am at the hospital most of the day when they are in school and then come home - do homework, dinner, baths, etc. My mind can't concentrate on anything. My mom is only 61 and has been healthy. My father passed away 2 years ago at age 63. Life is just feeling unfair lately. Thank you for letting me vent.
