Thanks for the prayers everyone.

She had surgery today and it appears that her doctor may have jumped the gun with the cancer diagnosis. The intinal tests on the tumor came back negative while they were doing the surgery. She still had a lot of fluid in her stomach though that they couldn't explain. They thought it may be her appendix causing the fluid so they went ahead and took it out but it appeared to be okay. So now they just have to wait for the more advanced tests to come back in a week to see if it really is cancer or not.

Glad the surgery went well, buddy. She remains in my thoughts & prayers, as well as all of her family. Sending positive thoughts, too.

I'm so glad to hear that things appear to be less serious than was thought initially.
I had a similar situation happen to me and I can relate to how frightening it is for the entire family.
I hope things continue on a positive note.
