It turns out no need for surgery (YEAH!!), as the doctors feel it is a really bad infection which should clear up with antibiotics and anti-viral meds. She has some color back and was hungry this morning. She is now clear for a liquid diet, jello, juice and soup. Thanks to all for the letters, calls, great positive thoughts and prayers. Unsure at this time how long she may be in the hospital still.
