Bev, congratulations to you and your family. We became first time grandparents last January, and it is fun (and tiring). My older son gave my wife a plaque which says-When a New Baby is Born, So is a Grandmother. May you have a long and loving relationship with the new grandbaby.

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.
