Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Jean has been having terrible health issues for the past year. She was admitted to the hospital Wednesday, January 9th, when her visit to the doctor revealed a blood clot in her lung. In the hospital, tests were done and she has further complications. A nodule in her other lung and a mass in her colon. Mass is a polite term for cancer. Wednesday, January 16th, she underwent surgery to remove the mass. She had 6 inches of her colon removed. It was a risky surgery because of her weak heart. She has come through the surgery and is in a lot of pain. At this time she does not want visitors, just lots of prayers.
