Hi All,

Just wanted to let you all know that I have some bad news.  I had an episode where I could not talk on Tuesday 1/12/16.  They found a brain tumor that night and did surgery the following day, Wednesday the 13th.  I was discharged from the hospital on Thursday 1/14/16.   I had no significant symptoms in the days before, except a little lethargic.  I can speak and feel fairly well.

The diagnosis is Glioblastoma multiforme.  It is not what Daddy had.   Plans for chemotherapy and radiation are still in the works.

Right now Nanc and I are staying with Jessie in Edina.  Paul, Heather, Seth, Erika, Hugo and Wil are all in town as well and have been great support. 

We're not having visitors yet.  I can't look at computer screen too long without a mild tension headache. I am also limited on phone talk for the same reason.  I can get to texts when I feel rested and will call whenever I don't feel it is hard.  I do enjoy the contacts, so please simply let me know if you would like to say 'Hi' when I feel rested.  I am trying to limit Nancy's phone time for now because she needs a little rest too.  

All I care about is that you all know how much you all mean to me.

All My Love, Cal
