Surgery done

Kay is now in recovery room and we just met with Dr. Safarri. He was able to remove a good deal of the cancer, but unfortunately had to leave more cancer in Kay's abdomen than he had hoped. This means that intraperitoneal chemotherapy will not be effective, and that she will be getting IV chemotherapy. This is likely to start in about 2 weeks.

This is difficult news, but we are going to hang tough, give Kay our full love and support. We know you are all going to do the same.

I don't plan to post again today.

Dear Kay and Ed, Debbie and I are so sorry to hear about Kay's cancer. We are praying ALOT that it will leave Kay's body asap! We are also praying for a speedy recovery from Kay's surgery.

Please let us know how we can help with food, laundry, or yard work(no Randy doesn't remember much about that kind of stuff, but he he has "people" who can help him if he has forgotten)!

With our love and prayers, Randy and Debbie
