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. ON MY 81ST BIRTHDAY, JULY 18, I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH BLOOD CLOTS IN MY LUNGS. UPON FURTHER EXAMINATIONS, THEY DISCOVERED SOME 'CYSTS' HAD RISEN THEIR UGLY HEADS ON MY PANCREAS AND LIVER. AS IT TURNS OUT, IT IS FOURTH STAGE PANCREATIC AND LIVER CANCER. I AM UP FOR CHEMO UNLESS A SECOND OPINION HAS OTHER IDEAS. I AM NEW AT THIS BEING SICK STUFF. I LOVE AND APPRECIATE THE LOVE OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS. IT TURNED OUT TO BE PARTY TIME IN MY HOSPITAL ROOM EVERY DAY, BRINGING SOME HUMOR INTO THIS NASTY SITUATION. I LOVE TO SEE AND TALK TO ALL OF YOU, BUT YOU CAN CATCH UP ON ANY NEWS EASILY THROUGH THIS SITE. I AM TRYING TO LIMIT MY PHONE CALLS AND REPEATING ANY NEWS I MIGHT HAVE. LOVE TO YOU ALL
