Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated, and to enlist your support in keeping her spirits up. While we had hoped by now she'd be in rehab - healing is taking a bit longer and she's still in Skokie. She's getting a bit tired of seeing us, her three kids, so we'd like to ask friends and family to see if you can find some time to stop in for a visit. And of course, we appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. Whether you have 30 minutes to stop in for a chat or 3 hours for a movie, your visit will help pass the time as we wait for her body to heal.
