When it rains it pours

Things have become bad. Right now I'm sitting in the hospital waiting room. My mom is in surgery. They have to remove a section of her bowel. It's an emergancy. She has an obstruction and if it ruptures, she could die. The silver lining is that this surgery will cure the colitis.

Angela's mom has been moved to paliative care. The cancer is too far progressed and their focus is to keep her comfortable and out of pain. They have stopped treating the cancer. They are thinking she may only have days left.
I'll update as much as I can.
