Hi, Jeff: I was hoping for better news, though I am glad that you gave the Tarceva a try. I saw my onco doc today at MD Anderson, and he says that Tarceva is still “trial and error”, and they don’t know yet why some respond and others don’t. You are brave for giving it a shot! My hat is off to you, as always. You are my favorite poster; please continue to contribute! Sending you good wishes every day.

Hello Jeff: I’m kind of new and quiet. When I first found this website, I kept seeing your helpful advice and optimism. Though my Mom had already left us, I still kept on reading in the hopes that there is some good news. You were always the good news (even when it was bad). You made a difference to a lot of us. Thank you.January 24, 2009 at 3:07 am #25701jcleggMember
I am sorry your news was not better, but have hopes that something else will crop up to help you – a result of your research, maybe – and will say a prayer to our lord to be with you in your search.

I’m so sorry to hear that the Tarceva didn’t work for you.

Sorry to hear your latest news. You are such an inspiration to all of us, such strength you have and I hope you keep up the fight. Stay strong, stay positive and remember what you you told me a while ago, hope is in the air.
You and your family are always in my thoughts.
Wishing you all the best.

Hey Jeff, accepting the Lord’s guidance is easier said than done, but I know you will just as Charlie and I have. We pray for strength and peace for all of us and acceptance of God’s will for us.

Keep that ever positive attitude. No one knows what is down the road. You are lifted in prayer.

You have been such an inspiration to so many. I will be hoping for the best for you. Stay strong & know that my thoughts & prayers are with you & your family.

I just ditto everything everybody else has said. We love you Jeff and pray that you will continue to stay strong until that cure comes. It could be one lab mistake away. I’ve read how often things are discovered completely unintentionally from a mistake that was made during research. So who knows? Take care and keep up the positive attitude.Bless you and your family.

With very best wishes.

This is not the answer we wanted. You continue to amaze and strenghten all of our resolve in dealing with this monster of a disease. Hang in there and continue to keep the faith.
As always, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

You are amazing, taking it all with aplomb. It’s true what Sophie says and I have said it before, you are a walking encyclopedia on cc. Keep on keeping on, we’re right there with you.

Well, my dear dear Jeff, this isn’t the report card we were all hoping for you, but you certainly don’t need any tutoring. All the doctors know you’re smarter than they are about cholangio. If I didn’t follow your advice, I never would have gone to the mountains the 3 or 4 times I did among another snippets of sound advice that has helped me cross a bump. I don’t even know what to say except you’re living your life to the fullest each day, and it takes strength to do that. I’m not doing that, and I’m ashamed of myself when I think of you. Every night the name Jeff is in my prayers, and it will continue to be. You have so much faith, attitude, and love to sustain you, Jeff, that I am humbled to be one of your web girls.
Faith in you, Jeff

Hi Jeff, good to see you and you are looking good to me! I had hoped for better news. Stay strong and know that not a day goes by that we do not think of you as you are constantly in our prayers.
