Lisa had some seemingly innocuous nausea and upset stomach for most of the summer in 2019. After a Gastroenterologist did some tests in Aug he couldn't find anything wrong. Then one day in September she had a pain so sharp we were going to go to the emergency room. A very nice doctor neighbor did a house call and said he thought it was gallstones or some gall bladder issue and scheduled some different tests. The gallbladder tested fine, but a scan showed some spots on the liver. From there Lisa got more scans and by November she was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. Since the cancer had spread to the liver and peritoneum, it is considered Stage IV.
