My Brother Has Cancer
Just got back from the hospital for my brother who went in to have a benign tumor removed............we arrived at 5:30a and his surgery was scheduled for 7:30a .It was estimated to last around 4 hours.. I knew something was wrong when, after 5 hours, I had not heard anything. His Nurse called and stated the surgery was still going on and it would take another 1 hour. 3 hours later the Doctor came and informed me that the "easy tumor" turned out to be an aggressive form of cancer the size of a soccer ball that he had never seen before.
Worst of all my brother was 5 hours in recovery and by the time he arrived on the floor for admission he had no recollection of anything and I had to deliver the bad news...........mind you I was the one who pushed him to have this surgery and that everything would be ok................this coupled with my "hubby" not giving a crap is just about to send me over the edge............
Thanks for letting me vent........

I'm so sorry Christine. Hopefully the doctors will have some treatments for it that will help. Did they tell you what they intend to do about it?

Dearest lil bunny,

I am so sorry Christine...I am praying for and your family and your brother. You may vent to me anytime if you would like. Just want you to know, there are a lot of people that can not deal with other peoples illness, it is common. Maybe that is what is up with your hubby? I pray for strength and wisdom to deal with this, and all the needs you and your brother have right now...

I'm sorry too, but thankfully you did push him to have the surgery. Is the cancer now gone with the removal of the tumor?

My warmest thoughts and prayers go out to your brother and all your family.
