So, Pam intended to have a great start to her retirement which began on April 7, 2017.  Instead it has been a series of medical tests and procedures. There's no easy way to say it but she has just gotten a definite diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. She starts pretty intense chemo on Wednesday, May 17, 2017. It's a bummer but she is doing pretty good; glad to have a diagnosis.

We apologize for not saying something sooner but we wanted to be sure things were definite. We will be using this Caring Bridge site to update you in one place; freeing us up from communicating with each of you separately. We hope we haven’t missed informing anyone, and apologize if we have. It has been a pretty intense 30 or so days. If you know anyone who may not have gotten our initial communication, please give them the link to Pam's site.

As Pam is wont to say, the train has left the station and is speeding towards a positive outcome. This train is a local, not an express, and there will be a few unexpected stations visited. But we remain in good spirits and are optimistic. 

Your thoughts, good vibrations and prayers are welcome.
