Journal entry by Sara Irvine

We want to first say thank you to all of the visits, calls and texts. Dad thoroughly enjoys hearing from everyone!

Today we met with an oncologist from North Platte that sees patients in Gothenburg. Dad will start chemo next week. Rather than doing the typical 2 types of chemo for pancreatic cancer, we are going to start with one and see how Dad tolerates it. 

The treatments are not going to cure the cancer. The goal is to slow the growth of the tumors, increasing Dad’s length and quality of life. 

Having you visit in person has had the greatest positive effect on Dad. We would appreciate having this continue. If this is not possible, phone calls are also good. 

Thank you all for your love, prayers and support!!
