Welcome to my CaringBridge website.   I am quickly learning that I tire easily and can't keep track of who I have shared "what with".  Please bookmark this page, share the link with those who may not have access but most importantly, please stop by!  When you stop by,  please remember to "check in", and let us know you were here by leaving your "Well Wishes" including words of hope, encouragement, prayers, light and positivity!  

The short story:  While traveling on business, I had a Grand Mal Seizure, which led to the discovery "peach" sized tumor located in my right frontal lobe aka "Dolly".   After starting new medications, several days of hospitalization and more tests I managed my hospital escape to fly home with my Mom (Beth) by my side.  3 days later  we met with my Denver Neurosurgeon  who spent an entire hour answering questions and educating us (Michael, Donna and Beth) on the challenging path that lies ahead.  The next day "Dolly" was served her eviction notice and her vacate date (Brain Surgery) was scheduled for Wednesday September 1, 2021.

We will not know the exact type of tumor I have (of the approximately 120 types of brain tumors) until after the surgery and the pathology report comes back  (about 2 weeks) - this will also lead to creating my "treatment plan."
