Hi Ladies. I have something I feel it's time to share with you all. 3 years ago my Husband was diagnosed with stage 2 pancreatic cancer. He had surgery to remove the tumor, part of the pancreas as well as his spleen and several lymph nodes. At that time we thought they got it all. However some cells must have already "escaped" and started growing on the surgical scar on the pancreas. We decided on chemo only at that time. Needless to say, it was not totally successful. Next came radiation. Again not successful, in fact it only seemed to "p" it off. In January we were told a cure was not in the cards, so o to a chemo regimen to prolong his life. It has provided us with these many months. On Monday his last scan showed that the tumors are growing at a rate that means the chemo is no longer effective. So now we are at the last stages-no more treatments and hoping that he still has some time with a decent quality of life. Please keep us in your prayers. And if I am not around much you all know why. Hugs. Nan

I am so sorry to hear what you have been going through. I'm sure you are doing all you can to make this part of his life comfortable. He knows how much you love him by all the care and love you you give him. It is hard to be positive when you know that there is nothing more you can do. I hope that you have family and friends near by to help support you through this journey. I hope you post here whenever you feel alone and stressed out along this journey you are on. Praying for you.

Nan my heart goes out to you and already the Lord has heard my prayers that your husband's passing will be painless and peaceful and you will have family and friends who will give you all the love and support you need.
I pray too that whatever the time you have left, is able to be spent creating beautiful new memories, remembering your love for one another, and plenty of joy and laughter.

Nan, You, your husband and your family are in my prayers. Cancer is never an easy diagnosis to hear and I know from experience that pancreatic cancer is difficult to treat. May your husband's final time on earth be peaceful and meaningful. Hugs

My heart is so sad for you both Nan and I pray especially that when the time comes for your husband to join the Lord you can take comfort and strength from this knowing that you will be together again eventually. It's a tough journey ahead so I pray that your husband passes in peace both physically and mentally, and you are left with the joy you had in sharing you life with him.
Most of all I pray you both enjoy this time together and can extract every possible joy and happiness in the days ahead. Hugs Lynne C

Everyone says I am so strong, but that is just a facade. It is such a surreal state to live in-trying to keep things as normal as possible while remembering how sick he really is. He is the strong one and to look at him you would not know he is as sick as he is. Hugs to you too.

Nan, I am so sorry. In a sense I am dealing with the same only not pancreas. Mine is in the left lung, inoperable and they say no chemo will stop the Sarcomas. I am fine with this and oddly enough they are very slow growing I believe it's prayers. God bless you both I ache for you both and you both will be in my prayers.

Oh Nan, my heart aches for you. It is good to let us know so we can lift you both, and your family in prayer, but I know your sharing had to be in your time. Sometimes we have to hold things close to our heart before we can let it out to everyone. Cancer seems to be in all our lives, one person or another. I am so sorry he will have to walk this journey but if his faith is like yours, he knows he won’t walk alone. Much love to you-Toogie
