It sounds crazy, but this all started with a toothache.  Linda got a toothache in February.  After 2 months of frustration and oral surgeries and lost teeth (3), we were sent to the ER to see the infectious disease specialist on call there.  Then they found the golf ball sized mass in her jaw.  We were shocked.  It was a punch in the gut.  After a thoracic CT scan, they sent her from the University of Utah hospital to the Huntsman Cancer Hospital.  The CT scan showed masses and lesions on her ovary, kidneys, liver, and lungs.  All of her lymph nodes are enlarged.  We are waiting for the results of a brain MRI and she has a biopsy today on the mass in her jaw.  We were devastated to hear the news.  The hospital people are amazing and positive.  There is hope and there are cures, but we need to know what type of cancer she has, what stage she is in, and where it originated in her body.  We are on a journey to find that all out so that we can come up with a treatment plan.  Thank you for visiting her site, for your positive words, prayers, and encouragement, and for all the service we receive as we our on this quest to cure Linda and make her whole. Our love to you all.

Visitor policy - Linda is very tired and weak and we know you love her.  If you want to visit, send me (Scott) a text first with the day and time.  I am the visitor gate keeper.  If it works, and Linda is up for it, we love to have visitors.
