Update...My dad

Well...good news, sort of. He does have a mass on his pancreas but it is operable through the Whipple Procedure. Pretty massive amount of surgery. Google the procedure...it actually has a pretty high sucess rate and getting better. He is scheduled for surgery on the 30th with about a 2 week hospital recovery then I'm sure Chemo will follow. He still has a big uphill battle to face but at least he has been given the opportunity to fight that battle. Thank God and all of you for your prayers for that.
