Friends;

I am reluctant to say this, and I apologize in advance if I'm wrong, but I have a sense in reading between the lines that this is cancer. :cry:

I so hope Anji comes back here so we can give her our cyber support. Life is so unfair at times, and it just hurts my heart this is happening to Anji so soon after Larry's passing. She is such a strong and loving woman. Not much seemed to keep her down. I hope that all those people who helped with Larry now surround her and her family to help during this difficult time. Anji - we love you.

She had the resection because they found a tumor during her colonoscopy. From a post on her daughter's page, it sounds as though the pathology report came back as benign, so no, not cancer.

Oh my goodness. I've thought about Anji a lot over the past few months & hoped she was doing well; I can't even imagine what she's going through!

You're right, a horrible, scary irony; and what a sweet, sweet woman.

Many positive thoughts & chickens are headed her way.

Thanks Bev for letting us know.

Thank you for the update on Anji. I have been thinking about her and wondering how she was doing, never expecting news like this. Anji and her family have been through enough. May she get through this and have a complete recovery.

Went in for surgery for a cyst on my bladder, and they found colon cancer growing on the outside of the colon. Got to have two surgeries at the same time! Stage 3, one node involved.

Glad to know it's not cancer but hate to read that there are further complications. Prayers being said for wisdom for the docs and for Anji to start healing and not become septic and for her kids to have peace about it all.

God bless ~

Bev, thank you so much for letting us know. I am truly in shock. Nobody deserves this, but twice in the same family??? That is hard to take. My heart goes out to them. They will be in my prayers.

Oh, Jorusi, I am so hoping that is the news. Either way, Anji's energy was so focused on Larry I hope she now focuses on herself. If it's not cancer, then my prayers have been answered.

I often wonder about our dear members who no longer post due to the death of their loved ones. I saw an old post of Anji's recently and was wondering how she was doing. I am sad to hear about what she is going thru and wish her a complete recovery. I offer prayers and best wishes for her and her family.
