Next week he has a full schedule of tests and appointments. We all desperately awaiting Friday, when we will be told if surgery is possible. He is on the schedule for January 30th for the WHIPPLE PROCEDURE, a procedure where the surgeon removes the head of the pancreas, the gallbladder, part of the duodenum (upper portion of small intestine), a small portion of the stomach, and the lymph nodes near the head of the pancreas. We ask for prayers that this time, the tumor shrunk enough AWAY from that main artery. IF he cannot have the surgery, he has been told he will have to endure chemo the rest of his life.
However, with the New Year, and our benefits start over. Jerry had met his out of pocket expenses last year, his pharmacy copays were little and with help from family he was able to make it. But everything is a fresh start now, to have his medications filled, pay for his COBRA Insurance he’s left with almost nothing. We are calling the help of everyone who can help. We have a lot on our plates with the upcoming week, but will be addressing and researching new insurance “hopefully”!! Your donations will help Jerry greatly with his medical expenses, filling his medications, paying for his COBRA premiums, and much more. We, his entire family, appreciate everyone’s help, prayers, and donations!
