I understand what you mean by wanting to know what lies ahead. I guess the
best advice given to us from one of my dad's doctors was to live each day as
if it were your last. There is no crystal ball to predict the future. Don't
put off anything you want to do and go do it while you still can. He is so
compassionate and I've learned so much by his example.
My dad has done fairly well with his cancer, but I know it will come back.
We have taken care of many legal issues concerning the estate, wills,
accounts, etc. That stuff is taken care of in case he were to get really
sick or pass away. Read the previous posts on this board and the pancreatic
chat board as well. Some of the best advice given here is to read a book
called 'Final Gifts' written by two nurses on the stages of dying. Do a
search for it on Amazon.com and read the info there about it or see if your
local library has a copy.
Take care, Mary
