Welcome to our CaringBridge website. 

In August 2018, I was diagnosed with a rare Bile Duct Cancer that has spread to several spots in my lungs, liver and abdominal wall.  The first 2 months have been difficult mostly due to all of the "life adjustments" forced upon Marie and me.  However, we have made significant progress.  My physical symptoms have improved.  Fluid is no longer accumulating in my abdomen and my breath sounds (lungs) are clear.  I've felt good enough recently to walk short distances in the mountains with friends and to do one 10-mile bike ride.  Repeat abdominal CT scans (the media that discovered my problem) will be obtained around Oct. 21.  By comparing new scans with the ones from August, we hope to see whether the various cancer sites have shrunk (not likely), stabilized (I hope), or enlarged (not good).   Feel free to comment on any posts I may make.
