My wife is 10 months past her diagnosis and 9 months past her whipple and received a positive report from her follow-up visit to JHMI on 9-24-01. She is feeling nearly normal at this time. Obviously we feel very good at this time. However, I would hastily add that this disease is very humbling. If my wife and I live to be 100 (we are now 57), I will always think that this disease could raise its ugly head again. For now I hope that we can enjoy some measure of normalcy to our lives before the next follow-up visit in three months. I am mostly a lurker on this group, but I am very appreciative of the atmosphere created by the mutually shared feelings. Many thanks, Dave
