Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. Clarence's surgery is planned for Friday the 16th at 7:30 am. It is expected to be a long surgery so updates may not be available very often that first day. Surgery is being done at Methodist Hospital in Omaha. Clarence is having a tumor on his pancreas removed. They can't tell whether it's a benign or malignant tumor until after it's out. Sounds like Clarence is going to be in a lot of pain from this surgery so please pray for a speeding recovery and good results! Sounds like controlling the bleeding after surgery might be the biggest issue.
