so, my dad (well stepdad, but i call him dad, my biological dad left when i was a baby and i dont have any contact with him) went for a routine check up at the hospital a few weeks ago, with him being over 60, they do routine tests and things to make sure everything ok. he told me that everything is ok, but he been shifty for last few weeks so i knew something was up. then he got a call on wednesday from doctors, so i asked him to tell me the truth whats going on, so he dropped the bombshell on me, he has prostate cancer. its only very small and in an early stage, so they cn cure it, i think, i hope, i dont know. his first appointment is next wednesday for scans and things, i promised id be there for him every step of the way, id look after him, but im heartbroken, cried solid for the last few days, hes my best friend i dont know what id do without him, im not ready to give up and let go. lost my mum to cancer 7 years ago, my ad dealt with most of that for her, i was never that close to her so i felt like i could carry on with my life as normal, but with my dad its different cos i am closest to him out of everyone, hes my best friend and it feels like my hearts been ripped out. i dont know if im strong enough to do this, but i know i have to for dad. whatever im feeling i know its a million times worse for him.
