No whipple for us

Gene went in on Monday to have the whipple. This is after 18 months of chemo and radiation.  He was cut open but no whipple. The radiation had fused the artery to the tumor.  Devastating news but we carry on. His tumor markers are low and we continue to pray.

I am so sorry. I too have Pancreatic Cancer in arteries in the neck of the Pancreases and to the liver. I am having the mega does of chemo to try and shrink so I can have radiation,etc. Then maybe whipple. I have decided that if I do not have good results with this chemo I will just enjoy the time I have left and be with my family instead of hospitals,etc. I feel blessed to be able to have time to make important dicissions and express my wishes. I am so right with God and it will be a relief when I get to be with him. I wish all people could feel as confortable about dying as I do.
