A message from Dad (Bill)

Hi Melinda - This will be just a short update as Cheryl is keeping her phone clear for the next 20 minutes or so on the offchance that you receive this within that time frame. Unfortunately the biopsy result was not what we were hoping for as there is a definite indication of cancer. Everything is still on the same plan - antibiotics for the next two weeks and then surgery and the doctor is of the opinion that there is no sign that the cancer has spread and is still enclosed within the intestine. If all goes well they will be able to remove the offending section and will also investigate to make sure none of it has adhered to any other organs. This is not quite what we were hoping for but at least it is operable and we won't know much more until they actually open her up and see just what is what. Thank you so very much for the time and effort you are putting in to keep her friends up to date on all of this. Have a Happy Christmas - Bill
