Update on Katelyn - After Surgery

Katelyn is out of surgery, but still in recovery. The doctors were able to remove about 99% of the tumor. They put in a temporary shunt, but they told Donna and LV they feel that she won't have to have a permanent one. They said their first impressions, based on observation, is that the tumor is malignant. (I'm not sure I spelled that right.) They won't know for sure for several days, once the pathology reports are back. Please continue to pray for Katelyn and her family. She will remain in the hospital for a few days. Then the doctors want her to come home and recuperate from this surgery before they move forward with further treatments. Once I know more, I'll pass that along.
