I found a friend of Anji's who looked like from a post that she knew more specifically what was going on with Anji. I had sent her a private message and just now got this response. I had told her about CC and that Anji had many friends here who were very concerned, and she gave her permission for me to post her message here. She included more personal information about herself that I am not sharing here, out of respect for her, but please DO NOTE that she has survived stage IV CC since 1997!!
Hi, Beverly, The pathology test did come back negative. Praising God for that! She did have a tumor but it was removed. After surgery she had a hematoma in the abdomen the next day & it had to be opened/drained. Then a few days later she had an aneurysm in the abdomen, it burst, they had to go in clean her out several times over a period of days. She has had high fever & pneumonia. They think they may have found pockets the infection is in & are going to do a scan to make sure before they take action. I think everyone is just stunned by how dreadful her situation has turned. She has been on a ventilator for many days. Yes, please, share this info with your club. Pray for a miracle. It breaks my heart seeing what they are going through. Anji and I have know each other for a long time. We've become a little closer over the past few years. I am also a colon/rectal cancer survivor since 1997. Stage 4. It was also in my lymph nodes. I had to have a resection done, over 1 year of chemo & a month of radiation.
