I got the results of my latest ct scan today and got good news. The cancer is still contained and has not spread. The doctor does not expect the cancer to ever decrease but he is encouraged by my treatments so far. The longer we can contain it the longer I may live and the longer I live the better chance I will be around for possible advancements in the treatment of pancreatic cancer. At the very least, I get to spend more time with my family which means as much to me as anything. I know God is working in my life and He hears all of our prayers. If you do not believe in God and prayer or just have doubts, please contact me. I would love to sit and talk to you about what He is doing in my life and what He can do in yours if you let Him.

I started my seventh round of chemo this week and will have another ct scan in 8 weeks. I've been doing pretty good. I have my share of bad days but lately my energy level is up which has allowed me to help more around the house and do more with the girls. In fact, we went to Braves spring training weekend before last and had a great time. Here is a pic of Lauren and me at the ballpark.

Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers.

Love,

Jeff
