Beca123 is my little sister. I have seen that some of you have commented to her about her situation and I thought I would just let you know what's going on with her. Well she was admitted to the hospital about 2 weeks ago and on Tuesday she had to have a little over a foot of her intestines removed. She had alot of scar tissue and they said it had formed almost a complete blockage and the only way to fix it was with surgery. She is doig well, in alot of pain of course and should be there for about another week. So all who read the please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
