He had a port put in and started chemo the first week in Nov. All was going good and everything was shrinking till July when we go the news that the chemo stopped working and the cancer had spread. He was still doing good though ...

      I have had a very hard time since the passing of my husband. He passed away in our home on 10-19-12. Just a week and one day after being put on hospice. He was put on hospice on Thursday and the following Friday he was gone. Thursday and Friday we were still trying to process the news. He wasn't able to lay flat in bed for a couple of weeks before he passed. He was sleeping in his chair and I was sleeping on the couc...

        Thank you all so much for the kind words and prayers. I find myself having melt downs. I know that this day would come but just can't believe how quickly things turn down hill. Just Wednesday last week he was laughing and joking. Now he talks real slow and almost sounds like he has been drinking. Sleeps almost all the time. Although I have cheerished the time around 9pm when he is more awake. I don't want him to suff...

          My husband had been fighting pancreatic cancer since October 5, 2011. This past Thursday we were told no more chemo can be done. They said that it could kill him. Said that it was time for hospice. Have a hospice nurse coming tomorrow. I am so scared. He is now yellow. He tries talking but is having a hard time. He is now talking like he has been drinking. Has trouble remembering things. He was doing so good and with...

Have an appointment on Friday to talk about this scan. God pleas...

                Thank you for responding. I am sorry about your dad. I will be praying for you and your family. This had been so hard. We have a lot of family and friends that support us. I talk to them all the time but yet I can't help but feel alone. They try to help in what ever way that they can and we appreciate everything. It's hard to explain to them the feelings that I am feeling when they have not been down this road. I mys...

We than started on a new chemo and found out that it isn't working either. He has right side pain now and is having to take alot of pain pills. I am scared out of my mind. I don't know what is in store for us or what to expect down the road. He has started sleeping more. He is more quie...

                    Our journey started on October 5th, 2011 when my husband was diagnosed with stage IV Pancreatic Cancer with mets to his liver.

He had 18 rounds with all CT scans showing positive results till the last one that showed one of the lesions had doubled in size since April. He was than scheduled a PET scan two weeks later. Now showing a vein off the liver ...

                      I am writing this today with a broken heart. My husband had his CT scan and now on 19th had his PET scan. The PET scan showed more than the CT. The PET scan showed hot spots with the liver, pancreas, a vein connected to the liver and two nymph nodes in his pelvic area. This is so sad since the CT showed that his liver went from 50-60 lesions on his liver to 5 and the pancreas is continuing to shrink. Looked so positi...
