I live in Raleigh and have UNC and Duke here. I was 42 when I had my whipple at JHH (Yeo) was there then, my son was almost 2 (he turned 2 while I was at JHH) I was in the hospital for 6 days and then stayed at a Residence Inn for 3 days afterward. (my hubby and mom stayed a tthe McClendon house while I was in the hospital) We had my mother-in-law fly down. We wanted the best possible outcome for me and to keep everything as normal for my son as possible (ie keeping him in his house). I wouldn't change a thing. I recouped as fast as one can, and I have no real lingering issues from the whipple (I'm beating the oddsasI had a positive margin lymphnode involvement and I'm 4 years since my whipple and living a high quality life) You have a challenge in that you have 3 kids and it may be harder to take care of that many. If you can find someone to either come to take care of the kids while you and your wife are in Baltimore (or whereever) and then maybe someone to help with you when you come home, so your wife can focus on the kids? If you want to talk let me know or If you have any questions, etc. e-mail me: starlori @yahoo.com
