I CANNOT look at Ken's death cert. But he suffered from bile duct infections that causes sepsis and apparently a bowel obstruction from the pc, and respiratory failure. I don't know if they put down PC, but I can't look - I'll totally fall apart. If they put bowel obstruction, sepsis, PC - how is that calculated in the total number of PC deaths? I think PC is under reported too. A friend of mine had a husband who died of kidney failure - but had PC and the kidney failure set in after one treatment of gemzar. She forced the doctor to change it to PC. May God Bless you and Sherrie with a wonderful New Year. Nancy
