Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Brenda, Mom, Nana...no matter what you call her or how you know her...family, friend, neighbor, co-worker, foster parent, fellow laker, etc. She has touched a lot of lives. Brenda suffered a massive stroke on 4/26/17 and was rushed to UT hospital. The stroke resulted from 2 complete blockages in arteries in her neck supplying blood to the left side of her brain. It has left her completely paralyzed on her right side. Initially, she was on a respirator and feeding tube. She was taken off the respirator over the first weekend. She was moved from the neuro critical care unit to a regular room on Monday. We will try to update this site with current developments in Brenda's condition.
