Welcome to our CaringBridge website. Will and I are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. It was becoming overwhelming to update my ever changing health issues in so many places. I was starting to lose track of who knew what. I am hoping this website will help ease that worry and stress a little for me. Will and I so very much appreciate your support and words of encouragement. 

My story as most of you know started on January 6, 2021 when I woke up at 3:30am having a heart attack. I have had three stents placed in my heart during two separate procedures in January. Two in the 100% blocked circumflex and one in the LAD 2 weeks later.

Shortly after that I had my throat scoped to see what was causing my worsening voice issue.  I had been told a couple years ago that it was scar tissue from severe reflux.  This January I was told it was an HPV papilloma.  We had to wait for my heart to heal enough before having surgery. 

During surgery May 17 it was discovered that it was not HPV but biopsy showed a rare form of lymphoma.  

This is where the updates I have been sending ended.  The rest of the story will be continued in the "Journal Entry" part of this website.  You will want to keep reading because it just gets weirder.
