Thank goodness my sister and I live within ten minutes and she has a live in boyfriend that is very helpful, if stressed. No one is really giving us an idea of possible life expectancy at this point, which doesn't sound good.

What doesn't help is my dad died of pancreatic cancer 16 years ago at 50 yrs old. Almost same thing, they opened him up, said we can't do anything and he went through chemo etc and made it six months.

My thoughts go out to everyone here, it's amazing the things they can do nowadays and they are making new discoveries every day. We are just taking one day at a time and trying to count our blessings.
