Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. On Friday, November 17 everything changed. After a week or two of worsening stomach and back pain and about a month of decreased appetite mom saw the doctor. All her labs were normal, but unfortunately the CT scan she had late Friday afternoon showed a mass in the pancreas. We essentially knew what that meant but it wasn't until the following week that we learned the CT also showed the tumor had spread to the liver, lung and omentum. A biopsy on Tuesday, November 21st confirmed what we knew; it was metastatic poorly differentiated pancreatic cancer. And so our journey begins.
