If you've come to this page - then you know our sweet Dixie Rucker. Thank you for stopping by & caring about our wonderful Dixie. I'll start off by saying that Dixie has always been a very private person - so, these updates may not be chalk full of every detail - just what we know she'd want to share!
As you may know, Dixie was diagnosed with a rare degenerative brain disorder - called PSP. It's a condition that causes balance & speech issues. She fell a couple of weeks ago & suffered a brain bleed. Right now, Dixie is at Ken & Susan's home under hospice care being made comfortable (under her specific instructions). She is calm & peaceful. She still flashes her "light up the room" smile every so often. And, she knows she is loved!
We appreciate all who have reached out for updates & concerns about Dixie. We created this page - so, you can check here for updates & we will update here to keep you informed. Thankful for technology to keep you in the loop, so, we can spend as much time as possible with Dixie.
