Final David Update

I am very pleased to share the news that my stepfather, David, has been released from his doctor's care. According to my mom, it was 98 days from his initial admission to the hospital to his release on Friday. Though the whole process has been uncomfortable and inconvenient, it is a blessing that his original gallbladder issue revealed a pre-cancerous mass in his pancreas. If the mass had not been identified and fully removed, his doctors say that he would have eventually faced a very, very serious form of cancer. There have been ups and downs and more than a few complications over these past few months, but I am so pleased that David is now healthy, cancer-free, and able to go about his life.
