      Unfortunately pancreatic cancer in its late stages is more rapidly debilitating than many other cancers and has limited life expectancy. She can try chemo while also working with hospice.

      Scottaysco, "terminal diagnosis"? We're all terminal---we just don't know when. Lots of patients are Stage IV for years, so you need to talk to her doctor about your question, and remember miracles happen.

      I hope you have great quality time together.
