A Little Closer To Diagnosis

Hello friends, we have a bit more news on Phil's diagnosis. After a game of phone tag, we got a hold of Dr. Binkley and received a bit more clarity on the situation.

It looks like Phil's tumor is indeed malignant, and will need to be removed via Whipple Surgery. The Dr. is going ahead and retesting the biopsies for some finality before we dive in. There is a small chance it still might be lymphoma. It isn't clear when we will hear the results, but most likely by early next week. We are still scheduled to go into the city on August 31st for a pre-op and final consultation with the Dr. We are moving ahead with surgery as the current plan.

More details to come. Much love, Hollie
