Welcome to our CaringBridge website.

- Dad had not been feeling well for a couple days, and we also know his blood pressure was extremely high. On Sunday March 26th he had an extreme headache and was throwing up. He finally let mom call an ambulance, and they found out he had a brain bleed. They transferred him to Banner Good Samaratin Medical Center in Phoenix. My daughter and I flew out on Monday and when we got there dad was still conscious, but not communicating well.  Things took a turn for the worse very quickly.  By Tuesday he was completely non responsive, his kidney function started declining, he had a fever, and they had to insert a breathing tube to increase oxygen to his lungs as well as the rest of his body. Dad also had developed the Shingles a couple of days before, and after many tests, they are thinking the shingles entered his bloodstream to his brain.  My daughter and I had to leave Wednesday, but thankfully my sister Tina and her husband were able to get there Wednesday night for a few days. We will take turns going back just as soon as we can. As of today, April 4th, he has been fever free for 2 days, but no real other changes. Please keep him and mom and my grandma in your prayers. We need all of them that we can get! Thank you for your love and support!❤️
