My dad has a history of lung cancer and a rare type of sarcoma and just recently on a xray a shadow was found. He has to wait 2 weeks to go for a scan to discover what this shadow is and i am pretrified! I cannot get it off my mind, all i keep thinking is that the cancer is back and that im going to lose my dad. I try to keep busy and keep my mind off it but the worry is always there. The thought of losing my dad scares me so much, i just dont know how i would be able to carry on without him. These two weeks seem like an eternity, i just dont know how to cope with these worries and try to carry on as normal as possible! i try not to show that im worried but i just dont know what to do help!
