For those of you who would like more information about the whipple procedure, click here. The surgery is somewhat exploratory - the doctors will have a loose plan, but will change things if needed once they get in there depending on what they see.
I've started reading the book, The Anatomy of Hope (given to me by my sweet Jordan). I'm only a few pages in, but I can tell this book is going to be a comfort to me right now. One line I love in particular so far is "During the course of an illness, hope can be imagined as a domino effect, a chain reaction in which each link makes improvements more likely. It changes us profoundly in spirit and in body." I have hope that tomorrow will go well, and now I'm waiting for that domino effect! I hope you're all hopeful too. I know Brucie is.
More soon. Love to all,
