Hi Everyone,

My husband, Chuck, was rushed to the hospital yesterday and has been diagnosed with Pancreatitis.............NO, HE IS NOT A DRINKER!!!

2 Years ago he developed this and almost died twice. He lost his gall bladder, spleen and half of his pancreas in a 6 hour surgery. 2006 was a horrible year for us and he was sick 8 months out of the year. Once we got over the hump we NEVER THOUGHT WE WOULD FACE THIS AGAIN!

I wont be around as much as usual but wanted to let you all know that I am requesting prayers for him right now. He will be having a MRI scan tomorrow because they think he may also have a Pancreatic Neoplasm as something weird showed up on the CT scan last night.

Foolish of me to think 2009 would be a good year.:mad::mad::mad:

On top of all of my health issues now I am dealing with a very ill husband.

Why???:worried::worried::worried:

Thanks. Chuck will be having a MRI tomorrow morning and of course I will let you all know the results. I am trying to be optimistic and working on finishing a bottle of wine right now. Funny thing is I am not a drinker but needed something to calm my nerves and it is working.

It has been a long day at the hospital and just hope tomorrow brings better news. I will keep you all posted. I hope your all well.:wink2:

Hi Karol,
I'm very sorry that your husband is dealing with such issues. Pancreatitis is a very painful condition. I hope the MRI will give you the information you need. In the meantime, positive thoughts and prayers heading your way.

Chuck is having his MRI right now so I stopped home to change the laundry and picked up some groceries on my way here.

Thanks for the well wishes from everyone and I will let you know the results.

My female intuition tells me no cancer.............I just hope it is right!:wink2:

Thanks so much to everyone that posted here.

I will do a update on a new thread as my husband is home and was not released by medical personnel but walked out of the hospital at 8:15pm last night due to, in my opinion, negligence on part of the hospital and nursing staff.:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
