I'm not a religious person but...this is bad.
My coworker in France just sent us an email. He says he's getting worse. The doctors haven't done chemo since December (not even palliative chemo) because it was giving him chronic jaundice and his liver couldn't take it anymore. The pain and malaise has worsened from last week, even on extremely strong painkillers. He sent my boss an email last week and said he couldn't lie down anymore, the pain is so bad. He has to sleep sitting up. We have no idea how he looks, we haven't Skyped with him in months. Back then he was still looking pretty good, albeit very thin. But pancreatic cancer goes fast.
He thanked us all for our love and support, and wished that he could experience the warm SoCal sun one last time. So I did some quick research and bought him this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rio-Energy-L...dp/B001PIJF48/ Since it's from Amazon.co.uk, I don't believe they have to pay customs on it when they receive it. It's the only thing I could think to do.
I'm getting married in under three weeks. I hope he can make it - he could see us all together (everybody at work is coming!) and he could be there via Skype, but I don't know how he is. If anything, I hope he isn't in too much pain right now, although I can't do anything about that. It all just sucks. He's only 31.
