Hello Everyone - This is Kathy's husband, Dick, just returned from the hospital where Kath had her surgery this morning. The surgery went well, only took 45 minutes. The outcome is not what either of us had hoped for. The 1/2 inch nodule in her right lung was removed and found to be cancerous. She also has a thickening of the wall of her lung in the same area, which was also found to contain cancer. This they did not remove as it is apparently quite a radical procedure. I was only able to speak to her surgeon so far. It appears she will require chemo, as they are afraid she has the bugs floating around in her looking for new homes and this will be the only way to treat for those. As to what they did not remove it will also potentially require radiation therapy.

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she is taking this pretty hard, knowing what is ahead of her.
