Hi there, this is Lucinda (Lucie's daughter) guest blogging for Lucie while she is recovering in the hospital. The good news is that she is resting (somewhat) comfortably in recovery, and should be released within a day or two. The bad news is they could only perform part 1 of what was supposed to be a 2 part procedure. Part 1 involved installing a drainage tube in her stomach to ease the blockage, while Part 2 would have established a feeding tube into the small intestines. Unfortunately they couldn't find a location in the small intestines that did not have cancer cells, so Plan B is to use her existing port that had been used for the chemo as a delivery for nutrition. We don't know anything more at this point but we'll make sure the blog is updated as we find out more information. As always, thanks to all for the continued support and concern.
