Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.
Jennifer has been in and out of the hospital for over a month with dangerously low blood sugar. After many tests at the local hospital it has been determined that she has a rare condition called Insulinoma.
Insulinoma is a tumor of the pancreas that secretes insulin. The doctors have said that the chances of having this are 1 in a million. Due to the complexity of her situation she cannot be treated locally.
Jennifer and her parents will be traveling to Minnesota to the Mayo Clinic where she will be seen by the best specialist. The procedure to remove the tumor is a very lengthy one and requires a long recovery.
While Jennifer is away receiving the medical treatment she so desperately needs her husband will be home taking care of their little baby boy and working to pay for the things back home.
Please keep Jennifer and all her family in your prayers and we will continue to update on this site.
