They say everything happens for a reason.  What that reason is, we may never know.

On Sunday, September 13th, I was taken by ambulance to the Morris Hospital.  I woke up that morning feeling strange.  Before I knew it, I was unresponsive.  This happened after I called Greg.  I was brought to Morris and they ran tests.  It turned out that I had a brain hemorrhage from a brain tumor and a Pulmonary Embolism.  I was then rushed to St. Cloud Hospital via ambulance (2 rides in 1 day).  I ended up with 2 surgeries in 1 day too.  They put a filter in my artery to catch the clot.  Later on that day I had most of the tumor removed.  They couldn’t get it all, because it was in a very crucial area.  I finally received a call from the surgeon (a 6 week wait).  It turns out that I have a stage 4 Glioblastoma.  It is a very aggressive cancer.  I will soon start on chemo and radiation, lasting approximately 6 weeks.  From there I will go back to the Dr. to find out how well the treatment worked.  

I ask of you prayer warriors, to please pray for me and my family.  It is going to be one heck of a ride and I don’t feel strong enough to go through it alone.  Thank you in advance.
