Craig's wife just posted on FB that Craig has been diagnosed with Appendicitis and will be having surgery today.

Please send up your heartiest prayers and good vibes and well wishes for him.

Marie who loves kitties

Update:

Craig had his surgery.  However it was infected so they are leaving the surgical wound open to heal rather than stiching it closed.  This means he may have to be in hospital a bit longer.  This also may keep him from getting to see his great niece "Little Miss Sunshine" whom he has told us about.  Hope that can be rescheduled as I know she would be a real boost to him.

it's terrible to think when someone is hospitalized that "thank goodness it's appendicitis" instead of some horrible cancer event, although appendicitis has it's own scary problems if they don't get to it in time.  I'm thinking of you Craig and sending every powerful wish your way that the surgery is quick and the recovery uneventful, I worry because you have been undergoing chemo treatment and this makes your surgery even more scary, I await good news, and you are in my heart and mind dear friend.

Poor Craig...it's just one thing after another.  I'm glad he at least got his magazine out before this hit.  I hope that gives him a little lift.

Craig, considering all that you've been through, an appendectomy should be manageable. Hang in the my man, you'll be on your feet before you know it.

For goodness sakes, you'd think cancer was enough to go through without slapping an apendectomy on top.  

Healing thoughts are being sent your way (by tons of us).  Rest, recover and continue your battle.

Hugs!
