    My mother had the Whipple Procedure in January of 2012.  She also went through months of chemo and in August of 2012 they determined that she was NED.  She traveled to see family in October of 2012 and when she returned she wasn't feeling well again.  I pushed her to see the doctors and the P-Scan showed that the cancer had spread to her liver.  She went through 11 months of chemo and in September...

            I may not be the best person to advise unsavory whether or not u want to have the Whipple procedure as I am writing this from a room in hospice as I wait for my mother to take her last breath.  My mother had the Whipple procedure in January 18 2012 prior to the surgery she was an active 75 year old woman. She worked full-time as a bank auditor, walked five miles a day and was planning on taking her great grandda...

              Everyone grieves differently.  I am in the process of losing my mother who happens to be my best friend to this horrible cancer.  Watching slowly and painfully die is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I am no stranger to the grieving process as I watch my husband pass assailant years ago from Marfans.  What thrilled me back then was a book on the five stages of death and dying.  By readi...

                  After almost two years of battling PC my mom was told on September 13 that it was time to contact hospice.  Despite sponsors year of 5-FU chemo her cancer has spread and continues to grow. We meet with hospice on Monday and I was shocked to learn that they do not believe my mom will be here for Christmas.  She currently sleeps about 20 hours a day, she is confused much of the time (she has been having mini-...

                    Yes that would be the same Bob Brown.  I did not hear that he had died this month.  It saddens my heart to know that someone who was so inspirational has passed on.  When my mom was first diagnoised he story gave me hope that she had a chance to beat this cancer

                      My mother woke up on Friday morning with a fever and very sick.  We ended up having to take her to the ER here in the county that we live in.  Because of this she was not able to make her appointment.  It has been rescheduled for September 13.  Watching her the last few weeks, seeing that her stomach is starting to retain fluids and she has a lump in the stomach that has never been there before.&n...
