April Fool's ( if only)

I came into the hospital on Tuesday with severe pain. Several tests indicated that I have pancreatitis, the origin of which is still not clear. The tests also showed that the chemotherapy is no longer working. There are no other reasonable chemotherapy options for this kind of cancer. A new phase begins which involves watchful waiting and treating symptoms as they arise.

In the short term we hope that they find a way to treat the pancreatitis or alleviate the symptoms so that I can go home this week.
