Welcome to my CaringBridge website. I am using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. I appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. In October of 2016, I was diagnosed with Ideopathic Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. There is no known cause for my illness. I was placed on oxygen 24x7. November 2016 started the trips to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Thank you for following me on my journey.
