Hi family and friends! Thank you for visiting my CaringBridge page. I will be adding more to my page as I find time.
It's all been overwhelming trying to communicate while going to appointments, doing research, making decisions, fielding calls, emails, texts, ect. while still trying to work and deal with "normal life". So I'm utilizing this site to keep family and friends updated in one place. I appreciate you taking the time to see how I'm doing and for all your support and prayers. All are needed!!! I've been told many times "if I need anything just ask". As an independent woman I'm not great at this part. But I also know even some of the "strongest" people need help from time to time. You are welcome to get creative if you have the urge to be there for me during this very stressful time. Otherwise just you caring enough to visit this page means so much already! Thank you!! Life has twists and turns and right now mine is a ROLLERCOASTER RIDE!
