My List of "I Knew's"

Sunday, October 23, 2011


I already knew many things about CP. It seems I almost obsessed on the topic because it was often on my mind. When something is hurting, it is usually not far from your mind. I knew about the implications the CP diagnosis the moment the soft spoken doctor who handed me tissues as I cried delivered the news.
What I Knew:
I knew chronic pancreatitis was caused by scaring of the pancreas.
I knew chronic pancreatitis caused an often chronic pain in the upper abdomen and back.
I knew chronic pancreatitis requires its suffers to take daily enzymes with meals.
I knew chronic pancreatitis can cause diabetes over time.
I knew chronic pancreatitis does not heal.
I knew chronic pancreatitis has no cure.
I knew chronic pancreatitis gets worse over time.
I knew chronic pancreatitis increases its sufferers risk for pancreatic cancer. 

WOWZA! How do you keep being a fighter with those grim little facts above? You do, and I did:-) I learned to thank God for the good stuff!
