Not good news

Well...got some pretty crappy news yesterday about my dad. There was a piece of the liver the surgeon took off that he told us initially tested benign. They did a frozen analysis and found that it is malignant meaning the cancer has spread from the pancreas to, at least, the liver. There is a small chance that maybe the spot he took off the liver was the only one. Nevertheless, the approach has changed from one of a curative approach to a containment approach. It's obvious what the overall outcome is going to be, it's just how long he's got. Sucks...big time.
