I have just woken up and rushed for my computer to see if there was news from Bruce.
The news is very, very, VERY grim!
Kacy definitively has highly metastasized colo-rectal cancer. The main tumor is so large that the surgical specialist could not even do the full colonoscopy (could not get past the tumor to inspect the rest of the colon). She also has likely two (maybe more) tumors in her liver. They took extensive additional x-rays (looking for upper G.I.; lung; higher intestinal tumor(s); etc.
Most sadly, Bruce has NEVER heard of anyone recovering from this particular scenario. At best, they might extend her life (which will be truly miserable) via chemotherapy and radiation (which is HUGELY devastating even on much younger people who do not already have a very weak heart (as Kacy does).
Unless some truly astounding major miracle is somehow available . . .
She will go into radical surgery sometime this morning . .
Bruce has asked me to pass on the news to everyone.
Thank you for your love and concern for Kacy. She DEEPLY appreciates it…as does Sara and Bruce.
Please will everyone who reads, this pray powerpunch prayers/think healing thoughts to fever pitch. Kacy needs us big time NOW as we need her.
I will be back here as soon as I get back from work.
