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.

After a ct scan on February 15th, mom was referred for a Pet scan.   The ct scan showed mom had stage 4 pancreatic cancer with tumors also in her abdominal wall and lymph nodes.  On March 1st the results of a pet scan confirmed that diagnosis and showed undetermined amounts of cancer in her liver and lungs.

While we are heartbroken we also realize that we are fortunate to have this time to cherish our momma and to love on her.   This diagnosis has shocked us all as our mom is vivacious, sassy, fun loving person who has an infectious joy. For this reason we are asking that you text, fb message one of us kids with questions. Mom deserves this time to not be burdened with repeating her diagnosis many times a day.  My siblings and I will respond to all texts. We also ask that if you have funny memories or pictures of great times, please add and post them here, mail them or text us kids and we will share them with her.  

Moving forward, we have asked for a second opinion from Emory Winship Cancer Center.  Her Drs have also sent her biopsy off for a genome test to see if there might be a treatment tailored to that type of tumor. At this time her Dr is recommending no treatment and hospice. Mom is feeling slightly uncomfortable, (she may take a Tylenol or two every other day) and up until a few days ago was still walking 1.74 miles each day.   

We love that we have a close Ethington / Schliep family and friends who have turned into family.  We are fortunate for that. 

We love you all and we know that if you have read this far you care for us and our momma / wife. 
With much love, 
Ron, Eileen
