Baltimore Orioles outfielder Eric Davis had a cancerous tumor removed from his colon last week and is expected to make a complete recovery, although follow-up treatment could keep him sidelined the rest of the season. Dr. Keith Lillemoe said last night that all the cancer in the colon was removed during last Friday's operation. The tumor, which was roughly the size of a baseball, was cut away before Lillemoe sewed the colon back together. However, doctors are discussing the possible role of chemotherapy to make sure the disease is kept in check.

For nearly an hour, Erika Berlinghof's heart stopped beating this week. While the high school senior lay on an operating table at Abington Memorial Hospital on Monday, a team of doctors performed a medical miracle. They cut out her cancer-ridden heart, repaired it with a piece of cow skin, then returned the organ to the teen's chest. Yesterday, Erika, 17, was sitting upright in a wheelchair, looking pale, her short blond hair pulled away from her delicate face. The Upper Dublin High School senior class president said it's time to focus on college.

An investment group led by Ellman last month reached a tentative agreement to buy the Coyotes for $87 million; the $10 million payment is considered a necessary step in the process of acquiring the team and hiring Gretzky. Gretzky, who retired in 1999, would be the second legendary athlete this year to join a franchise as a top executive and the second future hockey hall of famer to take over an NHL club in two years.

The Hall of Famer was buoyed by a visit from his great granddaughters, Valerie, 9, and Vanessa, 11, on Wednesday when they marked his 84th birthday by singing "Happy Birthday. " "They delight him whenever he sees them, and they brightened his day," Engelberg said.

Hideki Irabu's debut in New York on Thursday night not only drew a capacity crowd to Yankee Stadium, it also got the highest television rating the Yankees had earned in nearly nine years. The telecast on WPIX got an 11.2 rating and a 19 share (752,000 households), nearly double the Yankees' average of a 6.6 rating on WPIX this season. The last Yankees game to rate that high had been one against then-Boston pitcher Roger Clemens on Sept. 15, 1988. In his major-league debut, Irabu struck out nine in 6 2/3 innings, allowing two runs, five hits and four walks in New York's 10-3 victory over Detroit.

A 22-month-old baby in Lawndale may have bled to death from a cut in his foot because his parents' religious beliefs didn't allow medical treatment, police said last night. Dean Michael Heilman, of Longshore Avenue near Oxford in the Northeast, was pronounced dead at 6:35 p.m., but police said the baby may have died hours earlier. On Monday, police said, the baby stepped on a piece of glass near a wading pool and cut the bottom of his foot.

Sam Rennix could be forgiven for assuming that the worst was behind him after triple-bypass surgery in 2010. Then, last summer, his throat became sore, like something was stuck in it. Unlike many men, Rennix, who lives in Springfield, Delaware County, and is manager of Wolfe Pool Supply in Narberth, doesn't hesitate to see a doctor when something's amiss with his health. Perhaps it's because he's married to an intensive-care nurse and knows all too well that procrastinating can turn a curable problem into a death sentence.

NORTH CAROLINA said basketball coach Roy Williams' surgically removed kidney tumor was not cancerous, though he will have a biopsy to ensure a second kidney tumor is also benign. In a news release Tuesday afternoon, the school said tests have determined the tumor removed last week from Williams' right kidney was an oncocytoma, which is a benign growth often indistinguishable from kidney cancer on X-rays that doesn't spread like a cancerous tumor would. Williams also has a tumor on his left kidney, but according to the school, doctors say there is "a good chance" that growth is the same as the one removed Sept.

MILL VALLEY, Calif. — There was plenty of yip-yapping, tail-wagging fun going on in one particular park this month, and Sadie, Shelby, and Dilly Two-Step didn't much care that they romped on three fast legs instead of four. All manner of purebred and mutt — sleek, fuzzy, tall, and small — converged on Mill Valley Dog Park for the monthly meeting of the Northern California contingent of Tripawds, an online community for canine amputees and their owners. Cindy Sipple of Dublin, Calif., whose chocolate Labrador Ruby had her right front leg amputated in December, said, "They don't think, ‘Boy, I wish I had that other leg that I used to have.'

CARACAS, Venezuela - President Hugo Chavez has never been one to share decision-making authority. Now, the socialist strongman and acerbic critic of the United States may have no choice but to designate a successor. His announcement that he would go to Cuba within a week to remove a growth that he says is likely malignant could not come at a worse moment for the leader, who is working to transform Venezuela with what he calls "21st century socialism. " With a tight reelection race brewing for the president, analysts said Wednesday that Venezuela could be thrown into turmoil because Chavez has resisted grooming a successor during his 13 years in power.

Reynolds Price, 77, poet, novelist, biblical scholar, and linguist, died Thursday after a heart attack Sunday. While compiling an impressive list of literary achievements, he served for more than 50 years as a professor of English at Duke University - although, when he began, he thought it would be for only three years. Born in Macon, N.C., Mr. Price graduated summa cum laude from Duke, was a Rhodes scholar, and studied at Merton College, Oxford, with teachers such as W.H. Auden. He returned to the United States and got, to his disappointment, a three-year terminal position at Duke, in Durham, N.C., in 1958.
