Uncle Larry’s Standing Orders

0600 Tuesday May 24, 2005

Hi to everyone in the extended Palmer Family,
I have not posted any new information on my Pancreatic Cancer since I left the hospital because I have been talking to most of you on the phone and I wanted some happy events to be posted on the Family Web Page. I think the news that Andrea and Nate are going to have a baby is just what this Family needs.

I want everyone who reads this to know that I have cancer. I also want you to follow me as I face this adversity. Because the only good thing that can come out of this is the opportunity to show my Family how to face adversity. My orders to you are: KEEP YOUR HEADS UP AND KEEP A SMILE ON YOUR FACE. NO SAD FACES.

Today, I have an appointment with my primary care physician (Dr. Marilyn Brett Gordon). I will get a copy of the pathology report from the Boston Surgeon’s office. We will discuss blood sugar issues and I will ask her permission to get back into my routine at Gold’s Gym. Perhaps with some rehab help for the area of the Whipple Operation that was completed two weeks ago. On June 3, 2005 I will meet with the Surgeon (Dr. Charles M. Vollmer) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Two hours after that meeting I will meet with the Oncologist (Dr. Michael Goldstein). Dr. Goldstein will direct my chemotherapy. The June 3rd meeting will be attended by myself, Zellie, LCDR Palmer, and Dr. James Nightingale.

I have been humbled by the amount of cards and phone calls I have received since this new part of my life started on April 16, 2005. I can only thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Love, Uncle Larry
