My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

Jim arrived at the Cleveland Clinic last night via an ambulance from Aultman Hospital.  Of course being Jim, there was an adventure to the experience that you'll probably read about later!

Today, he saw lots of specialists, all with varied opinions.  Jim joked that they will need to get in a room and duke it out.

Tomorrow is dialysis, and a full body scan, or maybe two.  I hope we'll know something in the next couple of days.
