Surgery Results

Yesterday was a difficult day. I only have a few minutes so will keep this brief. Karen's surgery did not go as expected. Additional tumors were found in her left lobe which meant the right could not be removed as planned. The surgeon burned all tumors but did not remove any of the liver. The surgeon believes the tumors in her right lobe may be resistant to the chemo. We will discuss options today, one of which may be a 2nd surgery in the future.

Karen developed a mild fever during surgery, her platlet count is low and she may need a transfusion in the coming days. Otherwise she is doing ok.

I know everyone is praying for us, thank you for that. Please keep up the prayers as we all really need them at this time.

Karen and Fran,

We are hopeful that there is a silver lining in the news of the surgery. We have been and will continue to be praying for you during this time. The two of you are such a great example of true love and will be blessed for your faith and love. Please let us know what we can do to help.
