    Pancreatic cancer kills FAST. One of my clients at an old job came in and announced he himself had it, stage 4. He was dead within a few months. I talked to him on the phone about 2 days before he died.
    Jobs actually had it for 7 years and so lasted quite awhile. The problem is that it's usually not detected until it metastasizes, and by then it's everywhere. Half a year, maybe, is at the upper end of a typical length of time to last, but sometimes it's less. So Jobs did amazingly well. He had a rarer form that he was able to be treated for, but in the end it still caught up with him. (I think he had a liver transplant a few years ago.)

    I had a scare with my mom last fall, and it seemed probable that she had it; I was wondering at the time if I'd be planning a funeral in a few months. It's the same thing that took out Swayze a year or two ago -- I think he lasted what, 9-12 months? Not sure...

    I was under the impression that Steve Jobs died a year and a half ago while I was living in China.

    I don't know where I got that impression from.

    Guys. I think I'm from the future.

    Wow, 7 yrs is a long time. Yeah, the guy I worked with didn't find out until stage 4, at which point he was a gonner. I think you're right that pancreatic cancer is famous for being fast because a lot of people don't catch it until the end, and at that point, it is fast.

    Is your mom OK now?

    Hmmmm. Who else did you imagine was dead?
    And who is going to win the World Series this year? I need to put my money down.

    She's still struggling with gastrointestinal issues that the doctors haven't really figured out, and while she was always slightly overweight, now she has looked increasingly wizen and small.... so who knows what it is? She and I aren't necessarily close, but she's still my mom, and it worries me.
