Well, we didn't get the happy news we were expecting from the surgery. Once the surgeon got in there he saw that the cancer had spread to Tim's liver and determined removing the tumor on the pancreas was a higher risk than leaving it. They did remove his gall bladder which was full of stones. But told us that chemo is not very successful with this type of cancer. He is stage 4 and the decision to do chemo will totally have to be up to him. As the surgeon put it to me he will need to choose the quantity of life or quality of life. So it wasn't good news at all. He should be released from the hospital on Saturday. Just wanted to come and give an update. So not sure how my miles will add up now. I will update my post tomorrow.

Karen, I'm so sorry! What devastating news. Illness at this stage is all encompassing, there's no way around it. Walking may take on a new meaning for you at this time of your life. Regardless of how many miles, you just may need it as respite to clear your head, be alone with your own thoughts, or find a bit a rest from care taking. to you my dear! Know that you have a lot of virtual sisters and brothers on these boards who care about you and your well-being!

My thoughts are with you and your family Karen. You are facing some very difficult decisions.

Walking miles for the month of March is 111 miles.
Total for the year as of March 31st = 323 miles
