A good time was had by all. The weather held up; at least until Sunday... Which meant the boys did not get to go tubing, water-skiing or fishing at my cousin's. They did, however, play almost 8 hours of NASCAR monopoly! There is life without computers and the X-Box - who knew?!
I am a happily married 40-year-old mother of two boys, 13 and 10. A little over 2 years ago, on our wedding anniversary (Dec.03-'04), my husband (38 years old at the time) was diagnosed with colon cancer. We have since learned that his disease has metastatised to his liver and that he has a disease called FAP. Although his case was spontaneous, meaning he did not inherit it, our sons each had a 50-50 chance of having the same gene mutation. As it turns out, our youngest son also has the gene mutation and, at his last scope, had 18 polyps. In order to deal with all of this, and other challenges, we have had to learn to live one day at a time.
