Tim had been complaining off and on for about a month about a "gas pain" in his side. Because Tim is dairy intolerant, stomach issues for him are the norm, and I (Jill) didn't think much of it. On March 14th, we left for a ski trip to NH. After two full days of skiing, Connor and Tim flew home, while I stayed in NH with Camden and Lacie. Tim called me the following day and told me he made a Drs. appt for himself because the pain in his side had kept him up all night. I thought for sure he was going to have appendicitis. Unfortunately, when the scans came back they showed a cancerous mass in his colon, not appendicitis.
