Saw Dr Alexander today for a post procedure consultation and to get the staples out. The incision is almost healed, just a couple sore spots. He is very pleased with my progress, got another "Wow" from him when I told him how much I am walking. He told me some folks stay in the hospital 3 weeks after this surgery before they are in good enough sh...

Did 2 miles this morning in just 38 minutes. Go in tomorrow to have the staples removed, get the preliminary plan for chemo and be interviewed for a study on pancreatic cancer.
