I have been reading everyones meesages for about a month now. Finally I have time to write one myself. My husband John was diagnoised with pc last Aug. which already had spread to the lympth nodes, Therefore no surgery. He has been taking chemo. since Aug. (Gemzar). It has not spread anywhere else. My husband is 45yrs. old. we have 4 children ages. 22,15,13,11. Two of our children have juvennile diabetes which they take insulin for. Does anyone know what the chances are that my children who are diabetic have when it comes to pancreatic cancer? My husband has lost about 60lbs. from this, the doc's have now also doubled his morphin because the pain has gotten much worse. He is up all night and sleeps during the day.The doctors told me that he had 3 to 6mths.,it has now been 7. Last week he was so bad that I thought this was it. But the next day he sprung back. How do you really know when the end is near. My children & I need to know so that we can have some kind of closure. This is really killing us.I just want to make sure my kid's are prepared for what's going to happen to their father. Any sugg. would be greatly appreciated..... Thank you and God bless everyone here...........Becky
