Hang in there, Butler. The fact that you got yourself in for a colonoscopy and they caught it early is a very good thing. If you waited another 6-12 months and it got to stage 4, well, that's bad news. Your news is as good as it can be for something like this.
Like RFS said, keep your wife and family close. Life is such a precious thing.
Speaking of which, my niece did very well for her donations to the Colon Cancer Coalition. Donations are still being taken... http://www.active.com/donate/gyrigaustin10/KArtz2
