Surgery is over

Courtney is out of surgery. The news is both good and bad. The bad news is that there is a tumor that is sitting too close to very important blood vessels. Its proximity to this blood supply precludes removal or ablation to get rid of it. Therefore, they were not able to remove any of the tumors. The good news is that they did implant the pump that will deliver chemo directly to his liver. The surgeon in believes that it could still buy him some time and shrink the tumors.  He is doing well. They are taking him to the ICU and hopefully we will see him soon. Thank you all for your prayers, and messages. We will share all of them with Courtney as soon as he is awake.
