Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your love, prayers and words of hope and encouragement during this tough time and Jim’s recovery.  Many have asked how they can help our family.  We graciously ask if you could help with a monetary donation to help with Jim’s medical bills, rehabilitation , therapy and required equipment for when he comes home.   Currently, we’re both unemployed as his health and care requires my full attention and caregiving.  Many federal and state programs have significant waiting periods so therefore makes it a struggle to stay afloat without income.

The stroke was so severe, Jim is now classified as permanently disabled.  He suffers from hemiplegia and aphasia.  He’s not able to walk on his own and he’s unable to speak but a dozen short words.  Comprehension is there but it’ll take continuous speech therapy for the next 6 months to a year before we may see partial speech return.  But we can ask God for a miracle right?
