I have created this Caring Bridge Site to keep friends and family updated as I prepare to have my brain tumor removed. What?? Did I say Brain Tumor? Yes, I sure did. When I was 14 weeks pregnant with Baby Alex (on November 15th 2012), I was diagnosed with a Stage 1 Glioma Brain Tumor. (Mind you this was a very scary day that including going numb on my right side, a helicopter ride to Baltimore and lots of questions) So for over a year I have held tight and focused on Alex and got the tests and follow up I needed. It has been busy, we moved to Baltimore to my old house, sold our house in Salisbury, and made lots of life adjustments. Now that we are getting ready for the holidays, I wanted to share that we are planning on embarking on a January 2014 adventure that will radically remove this tumor and let us put it in the rear view mirror!
