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. 

I would like to begin by giving you a little history of how we ended up here. A few days ago, she started having a little difficulty with word finding and repeating her thoughts. We got her in right away, and she was transferred to Sanford Hospital in Fargo.  After having an MRI, a 3-4 cm mass was discovered in her left temporal lobe. It is causing a midline shift, which is the reasoning for her expressive dysphasia (difficulty with word finding). She does not have any strength loss at this time, and thankfully, she has not had any headaches either. It is suggestive of a primary brain tumor or glioblastoma. We are hoping to meet with the surgeon sometime today to have a more concrete plan. If you know Carla, she of course, is worrying about everyone else.  We are all praying, and she says she is in God's hands, so we appreciate all of your love, support, and especially prayers.
