    cz,

    What a blessing for your father to have left this life embraced in love.

    Di,

    It is such a relief just knowing you are with us, doing the "two steps forward - one back" dance. What a sight it would be if we could get it all on video somehow.

    Deb,

    Congratulations on your numbers and results. It sounds like you have had (and continue to have) a good response to treatment, with manageable side effects.

    If the side effects (fatigue)...

    COngratulations!

    CA19-9 is not a perfect measure of what is going on, and it is always hard to compare two numbers and say there has been improvement. There are just too many other things that can...

    Judi,

    Several things going on, none too serious, one of my own making.

    I've wanted to write for awhile, but never quite get to my own story.

    Momoftwo,

    Lisa is right on with her advice. Pancreatic cancer is virtually unheard of in someone so young - unless there is a familial, genetic cauise, like BRCA.

    That said, you do have...

    Sorry about your father's further problems. I don't see how a CT itself would cause chills or fever, unless it was a CT with contrast. In that case a reaction to the contrast media could give...
