    I added this photo by mistake, but in any case these are 3 of my grandchildren up at their folks summer home. They love it upstate of Pa., near the border of NY.

      Enjoy the time you have with them while you can. They grow up and almost disappear before you know it!

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I did 2 weeks of chemo, (pills), and quit. The strongest side effect I had was red hand/red feet. I had the same side effect 19+ years ago when I had pancreatic cancer. If I ever get cancer again I will not do any type of treatment chemo or radiation. Never again!!!

      We all have to do what we think is best for ourselves. As you know, you have been luckier than most people with pancreatic cancer. I hope that you can still do things that make you happy. Take care.

    Side Effects: Low blood sugar...nerve damage. Red hands / red feet. My hands were red on the inside, and extremely sore to the point where I could hardly pick up a utensil to eat with. The skin on my palms eventually peeled away to make room for new skin. My feet were red, but not nearly as bad as my hands. I had a gross looking big toe on both feet. Skin peeled a way, but more so on the left foot. The skin/sore on the big toe on right foot healed rather quickly. I couldn't say the same for the big toe on the left foot. As it finally started healing I developed a gross looking sore on the bottom of my left foot just under the little toe.
