 Welcome to Caring Bridge website.  First of all, thanks so much for your prayers and for caring. By using this website we can keep you all updated.  Thank you for visiting.       

The last six weeks Hank has struggled with health issues and two hospitalizations.  This is a man who hasn’t ever been sick except for having his tonsils out.  The medical people say that this is one of the most complicated cases they have seen.  We are so thankful for their wonderful care and expertise.  

On our first visit to the hospital Hank was diagnosed with clots in his legs and lungs.  This problem was addressed and we were sent home.  We went back to the hospital on Sunday the 28th and unfortunately scans showed that Hank has a brain tumor, kidney cancer and some lung issues.  He started radiology today and will have six treatments.  

Also Hank had a stroke on the 28th and his left side was compromised.  He is making great strides in PT and we are so thankful that his mind and speech weren’t affected.  Of course the possibility of stroking again has made treatment very difficult.  We have at least six different specialists working on his case and we hope to have a plan for treatment soon.  

We are staying positive and thank you again for your thoughts and prayers.  Keep them coming. Our entire family thanks you for your support and it certainly helps lift us up.  We will continue to update you on Caring Bridge.

Thank you.
The Hinrichs Family
