He’s out of surgery!
Jimi is awake. The tumor is definitely malignant and he will require more treatment. They were not able to get the node on the lung as it was too small. Unfortunately, the tumor had spread to the vena cava (main vein to the heart) and made the surgery very difficult. But the surgeon does feel he got all of the softball size tumor and vena cava spread out.
Thank you for your support. The long road has only just begun.
Love to you all,
