Response to Original message
60. Sanjay Gupta on CNN said Sharon had 50 cm of his intestine removed.
It was filled with gangrene. 50 cm is a lot of intestine, Dr. Gupta says.

I never had much hope for Sharon ... the kind of stroke he had -- I just never believed he'd come back very far from it ... God bless him. If his "time" is today, I hope he goes peacefully.
