Update on Andy

An updated message went out on Andy:

We heard from Fr. J.J. this afternoon and Andy came through the surgery well. His spleen was 15 inches long and filled with ping pong ball size tumors. There is a tumor on the prostate and another on the liver which they could not do anything about. Andy is in ICU and receiving morphine; Fr. J.J. expects to bring him home tomorrow. The plan is to start chemo in about 10 days.
Keep up the prayers to St. Francis!

Andy and Karen
And a little later, basically the same message was sent out from a different source:

Yes, we just heard from Fr. J.J. a few minutes ago. Andy came through the surgery in good shape. His spleen was 15 inches long and filled with ping pong ball size tumors. They could not do anything about the tumor on his prostate or liver. Andy is in ICU and on a morphine drip; sounded like he is resting well and Father expects to bring him home tomorrow. The plan is to start chemo in about 10 days; that could change once they get the test results back though.

And, from another source:

We just got an update on Andy. He came through the surgery fine. They removed his spleen which was about 15 inches long and looked like a sack of ping pong balls. He will start chemo in a few days. He will hopefully come home tomorrow. Fr. JJ sounds much relieved and much better than yesterday.

Keep praying!
