Hi KJ, thanks so much for your reply. It means a lot to know that there’s someone out there. I’m usually a reader and not a responder but I now know how much it means to just hear from one person, so thank you! My Mums tumour counts were rising on her last test 3 months ago but the computer systems were down yesterday so we couldn’t get the most recent results. I didn’t have the courage or want to ring today for the results. The really great thing is that my Mum feels wonderful. She’s full of life and to look at her, you’d never know she had or has Cancer. She’s an absolute fighter and so full of life. The pancreatic Ca was an incidental finding after a colonoscopy for diverticulosis just over a year ago, and her consultant suggested a CT abdo which we all thought was a bit OTT. Anyway, here we are. Today was a better day, in fact it was a beautiful day full of fun and laughs. As you said, one day at a time. Thnaks again for connecting. It meant so much to me.

I’m just feeling a bit lost here. My mum who is the sunshine in my life has beaten pancreatic cancer against all the odds. Today we found out that there are two suspicious masses on her lungs that are very small and also possibly a “spot” on her spine which shows on the PET but not the CT. I’m trying to be strong and hopeful but so scared about what the future will bring. I don’t know what I’m looking for but I can’t sleep and I’m at a loss tonight.
