My grandmother called me at work today to tell me my grandfather has been diagnosed with colon cancer. He will be going in for an operation next Wednesday to remove about 10 cm of his colon.
They say they've caught it in the early stages. We'll have to hope for the best. He just finished his ordeal with the skin cancer and now this.
My colleagues had me sent home from work. I came to my grandmother to come and be with her. My grandfather is out working.
My grandfather might as well be my father. I've always looked up to him and he's been the constant male role model in my life.
Please spare a thought or a prayer for him and for us.
