On Thursday, August 22, Rafe had surgery to remove his colon as a result of a severe flare up of the Crohn's disease that he has had for decades. Rafe had been in the hospital for over a week in extreme pain and had lost twenty pounds by the time it was decided that surgery was his only option. Since then, his recovery has been slow and difficult. We are deeply, deeply grateful for the many expressions of love and support we have received during this time. We hope this site will make it easier for everyone to keep abreast of what is happening with Rafe's condition. Thank you for visiting and leaving your comments.
