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.
Most of you are aware that I am high on the Transplant list for both Liver and kidney. I am in VA, at my cousins/ Dennis Taets and his wife Sharyn. Because they are only 2 hours away from Johns Hopkins Medical Center, where my liver specialist, Dr. Andrew Cameron is located, it is closer and an easy drive to travel when the matching organs are found to match my blood type. I am tired a lot, because my kidneys are beginning to shut down, I believe. And my liver is slowly growing with more cysts attaching as well as the kidneys. Also I get nauseous about every 3 hours and must eat small meals because my liver has shrunk my tummy.
Thanks for all of your prayers, thoughts and donations. Thanks to my wonderful previous neighbor in Lombard, IL, David has suggested this website is much easier for so many of you to follow as I will be entering surgery and recovery any day now. He survived bladder cancer and has been a pilot for American Eagle for 25 years and more, with also taking about 8 months off for surgery and treatment himself maybe 8-10 years ago. His supportive wife Linda who now teaches music, and their 3 growing up children are part of my family over 20 years. We all believe in God and his caring and support we all pray for our strength and courage to recover quickly and become even stronger.
Thanks for visiting the beginning of my story. Amen for today!
