Update on my dad

Well, 7 months after diagnosis he's still here which, considering it's pancreatic cancer, in itself is a miracle. He's had 8 chemo treatments and has had some side effects but nothing real serious other than an episode with really low blood sugar resulting from him being nauseous and tired and taking insulin,not eating, and laying back down. Just heard today his CT scan from last week shows no cancer at all and his liver functions are normal. Doc is giving him a break from chemo for a short time to allow him to gain back some weight. So, great news. thanks for all you thoughts and prayers. You guys are the best.
