I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
You can try spraying some graphite around the key at the key cylinder then wiggling the key out, but I have to tell you that the vast majority of times it is going to take removing the key cylinder and then prying the key out.
And the wrong key in this vehicle's ignition cylinder will cause either the immobilizer to lose memory and require reprogramming with a diagnostic scan tool, or will actually damage it and require its replacement.
Sorry that you have had to wait so long for bad news on this
