OK..., here's the deal...
Several of you have seen the prayer requests and such on FaceBook...
A few months ago a scan picked up a cyst on my pancreas, it was biopsied (EUS) and determined pre-cancer. I had a follow-upCT scan a few months later (a few weeks ago), that shows it getting a little larger.
I had another EUS (endoscopy, ultrasound and FNA) last night.
I need prayers that the biopsy comes back clean...
But in addition...
They feel and recommend that I have the Whipple Procedure to remove the cyst before it becomes cancerous.
Unfortunately in so doing..., they remove parts of the pancreas, stomach, gall bladder, and areas of the intestines. It's a pretty major surgery.
Sooo, please keep Shelley and I in your prayers, we really need them right now.
