My mom emailed me and my brother earlier to let us know that Aunt Anne, her older sister, has begun chemotherapy for late-stage pancreatic cancer.

Is it me (my sense of time may be distorted) or has your family just not had a break the last few years...

It does feel a little like that. My mom's father died in October 2005, and her mother in February 2006. So it's been only a little more than a year, and that makes this feel particularly rough. It was never a surprise that my grandparents went so close together, though.

Because they did get the chemo started, my understanding is that right now, they really have no estimate on how long Anne has, until they see how she responds. If they hadn't been able to do chemo, they gave her 1-3 months.

Thanks.

Also, I don't think I've gotten around to commenting to Amber, but you and she and her family have been in my thoughts and prayers.
