I am sorry to hear this. No time of year would have been a good time for this to happen, but it sucks even more that it is around the holiday season. Do the doctors know what the chances of a successful RF scalpel procedure is? And what exactly is that?
My best friend's dad is in the hospital right now with bone cancer. Things aren't looking good for him either. It is a very hard time to go through, but you have to keep positive about the whole thing and hope for the best.
My prayers are with you.
