So we don't have much of an update, but surgery for this Wednesday is cancelled. We will be getting our expert second opinions next week, so in the meantime we are just "hanging out." The second MRI Case had on Tuesday showed that he would definitely need a Whipple procedure at this point. The general consensus between his oncologists here is that we would do two more rounds of chemo and then reassess with more scans. Not excited about that endeavour, but it could be worse. The hope is that more chemo would shrink the tumor away from the pancreas. I think he'll end up needing a Whipple after more chemo anyway, but we'll try anyway!!
