Updating Mark

We just got a call from Bernie's mom. Mark is out of surgery. They didn't have to remove his colon, which was especially good news, and he lost very little blood. The removed organs are at the lab, after the results come back more will be know about the spread of the cancer.
There was one area tied up in major arteries that could not be removed, that will be an area of intense radiation therapy after Mark recouperates a bit.

We are so thankful...
