What Can a State Fair Corn Dog Cure?

It can cure the I've been eating ice chips for 2 days blues.....yep, this is my mother and she was allowed to resume "regular" food....and guess what she wanted? You got it, a state fair corn dog. I even got it to her before it was COLD. The nice man at the corn dog stand even gave me TWO of them when he heard that this was what she was requesting.
I was worried that she wouldn't be able to eat it, but she scarfed it down and IT STAYED DOWN...wooohoooo.
Here is the latest update on her condition:
Yes, it turned out to be stage II colon cancer. Yes, we are sure we caught it early. She will probably have to do some type of chemo since the stuff did get through the wall of the colon....it did NOT get to the lymph nodes or other organs. PRAISE GOD!!!
She is going to try to qualify for a cancer study through MD Anderson. She has to completely heal from the surgery before they can do any kind of treatment...which will be about 3 weeks. Hopefully, she will be out of the hospital tomorrow. Please keep her in your prayers.

My prayers are with your Mom and Family. I'm very glad it was caught early.

And for the record, I would probably request a state fair corndog too. They're super yummy.
