First. Thanks so much for you insight and compassion that you share on this board. I see it every day that I read here. You answer so many and give them hope and new ideas. Thank you I saw Dan today. He still looks very wrung out. The chemo was Mon so I am assuming it is the results of that treatment that is making him sicker than he was before. They gave him some anti nausea pills which seem to help but he still feels pretty bad. The Doc says he is not bad enough for a stent yet. As far as what surgery they were talking about since I wasn't there. He has been forced back into the Kaiser programs due to his insurance and he is still trying to get a referral to a surgeon who specializes in PC. But trying to expedite something at Kaiser is like trying to make an appointment with the President. I suggested today that he consider getting Hospice involved now so they can help stabilize his medications and get to know him a bit before he gets real sick. He is a bit resistive, but he is with most things right now. He is generally just plain mad at everybody and everything. I'm sure I would be the same way. Thanks for listening God bless Jim
