Devin & Conner’s Dad, Mike, has colon cancer.
Back in June, surgeons tried to remove the tumor but it was too big. After a round of chemo and radiation, the doctors determined that the tumor had shrunk enough that they could go in and remove it. They tried to do so last night.
The tumor is wrapped around a major artery and they could not remove it. I don’t know if they can bypass that artery, if they are going to do more chemo and radiation or what. It appears they have to go back to the drawing board as far as treatment.
Please keep Mike and his family in your prayers, as well as prayer for Devin & Conner.
2:15 pm – The tumor is not wrapped around an artery so much as it is in the middle of a highly vascular area. It has also attached to his bladder. Radiation is no longer an option for him (he’s had all he can have) but the doctors were pleased with how much the tumor had shrunk and are optimistic about chemo. Mike is in fairly good spirits, all things considered.
