Hi C'ville,

Charlie received a letter a few weeks back. He's leaving the practice. Apparently the practice is being absorbed by the health care system he's involved with. In his letter he introduced 2 new drs. He said he will be around to make the introductions when possible. Don't know the details, but he was dx'ed in May, and sadly, I do not think he is a candidate for surgery. Heartbreaking....he's 49 yrs. old.

Well, I guess it's time for Charlie to find a new doctor. I'm not a 'doctor person'...haven't a clue how to find one or interview someone who can deal with the issues of a Whipple survivor. Doubt the oncologist would be of assistance either. We'll figure something out, I guess....

How's your husband? Coming up on 7 years! Hooray!

Pat
