First I want to thank everyone for their prayers.
I checked out of Falmouth Hospital at noon today because they have done as much as they can for me and I will be at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at noon tomorrow.
I am sorry I have not been able to answer the phone for everyone that has called. We have been overwhelmed here and Kate is doing a good job of updating the web page. Thank the good lord for Don Patterson III and Sandy supporting our Family web page.
Uncle Mike will handle the direct communications with all of you and I will do my best to have Zellie and Kate keep him up to date. He has the most experience with my situation of any of our family and he had a long talk with me last night at Falmouth Hospital. His pointed questions were great because it got down to the known facts and not speculation. His experience with this particular hospital in Boston and cancer 2 years ago is a big help to me now. We are preparing for the worst case and hoping and praying for a better result. I don’t know if I have a tumor or cancer. I do know that I have a mass near my pancreas that needs to be sampled and removed as soon as possible.
