[FONT=Garamond][SIZE=4]I have no knowledge of cancer. I know that there are different types, but that's all I know. I don't understand the different stages within each, either. I think cancer is also a scary thing, and it's not something to just brush off.
Last year, my boyfriend's dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. He passed away last November; his one year is on this November 29th. I went through a tough time, nowhere near as tough as my boyfriend, but it was still hard to get by.
Today I found out that my grandpa has stomach cancer. I am completely scared. Even though the doctors caught it early on and even though he will be undergoing surgery, I can't feel at ease. I need to cry it out. I need to just let my emotions run.
I don't know when he's having surgery. I don't know if I should go visit him and my grandma at all between now and the TBA surgery. I don't know if I want to know anything else.
I just don't know. My heart aches, my eyes are swollen, my body hurts.....
I am praying for my grandpa, that he will have a successful surgery. I'm praying that even through this time, my family and I will be strong.
