Moving Forward

After meeting with my surgeon, Dr. Schulick, it has been determined that I will need surgery to remove the cancer on my pancreas. The surgery has been set for Wed, June 27th at 7:30 am. He and his team at Johns Hopkins are planning on performing the Whipple procedure. This is a complicated procedure that usually take 6-8 hours to perform. Dr. Schulick does 1-3 of these a week and Johns Hopkins hospital has performed more of these procedures than any hospital in the world. Isn’t God awesome!

The recovery time will be lengthy so once surgery day comes this blog may become quiet for awhile. I will try to keep you informed until then although there is a lot to do between now and then.

Thanks again for your prayers. I am trusting God everyday!

    Dean- my family is in constant prayer for you and your family. It is awesome that you are going to Hopkins as it is so important to have this procedure completed in a medical center that performs the Whipple routinely…

  2. Hey Dean,

    We, myself and the association, will remain in prayer for you and your family, Dean. Keep up the good work!
