We went to visit Harlan's dad on Saturday. He is getting much weaker and is very tired but he is still able to visit with us as his strength allows. We are thankful that most of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren have been able to see him in the past couple weeks. Pray for Harlan and the family during this difficult time.

Gerald has been transferred to Jefferson Place for rehab (Room 8). Please pray for Gerald and Geneva as these transitions are difficult for them. Visitors are very welcome.

The radiologists are now 99% confident that the cancer has metastasized from the pancreas to the liver, most likely through the bloodstream, so the cancer is now classed as stage 4. Since the cancer has metastasized, Barb is eligible for a drug trial. She would receive the “standard” chemo treatment (as already planned) and then also be part of a trial where she may be part of the group receiving a new drug or part of the control group. She is only eligible for the trial if no chemo treatment has started so the current plan is to delay the start of treatment by a week to complete the steps necessary for the trial. Radiation is not part of the plan as radiation is very damaging to the liver, and the lesions are relatively small. Please continue to pray for Barb and Gary through this next step.

Harlan's dad has been placed under hospice care as he could not tolerate the radiation treatments for lung cancer. His health seems to be deteriorating quite quickly. Please pray for our family.
