I immediately put all my paperwork inorder, so I could get it off my mind and if you do it now, when i hope she is still having good days it seems less real than waiting until I was much sicker. try that approach. i was lucky to have a lawyer we had used before and knew and his personality helped to.

Also just for the record, there is no way to know at this point if chemo will help, which chemo will help, how it will effect her. Its all trial and error, because we are all different. I have been very lucky so far. I was diagnosed over a year ago, yes I have had to have chemo on going all this time, when one stops working they try another. Each time the side effects were different but typically I have had far more good days than bad. I don'tthink I would have the energy to care for a 2 1/2 year old full time though. I was given a bypass when they couldn't do the whipple and I think that has helped with me being able to eat most of the time. Good luck, my prayers are coming your way
