Many may remember that my brother in Sacramento had a major issue with pancreatitis a year or so ago, with his gall bladder removed. Talked to him last night and he is still symptomatic and the MD's are questioning pancreatic cancer but all the tests come back negative. They will be sending him to Palo Alto for the Stanford MD's to look at him.

Seems that there is a lot going on in my family right now.

PS: For those on FFF or Surplusrifle forum he is Popeye, you know him.

Good morning
I wil pray for your brother that God will give them docs wisdom and understand how to make it right. Or that God Himself will step in and dumbfound the docs with a miracle.

I talked to Paul last night. He went to Stanford Medical Center, they went through his mouth and throat to get to his pancreatis. They moved some stuff behind his pancreatis and opened something up as well. Took all of an hour outpatient. He was home last night and feeling fine for the first time in three years! I'll probably talk to him Sunday night to see if it is continuing.

Thanks for the prayers.

Paul says "I'm feeling human again!" He is keeping food down easily for the first time in a long time. This is an answer to prayer for a number of years. Thank you for joining us in these prayers.

Good to see he is doing better. When I was in Afghanistan my son got pancreatitis because of a bad reaction to some medicine.
