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.

Nancy has been hospitalized since Saturday, April 16. She had been feeling sick in the days before with increasing difficulty breathing, resulting in ER visits on 4/16. Doctors determined she had experienced heart failure requiring care in the cardiac ICU at Seattle’s Swedish Hospital Cherry Hill. In the following week she has been sedated with a breathing tube while doctors addressed issues with her kidneys and blood flow. She had surgery to remove blockages on Wednesday 4/20, and complications have resulted in continued monitoring for her hear, kidneys, and blood flow to her feet. She has been sedated and intubated since her admission to the ICU and has been minimally responsive.

Due to COVID protocols visitation is restricted to one daily designated visitor. Tom is that designee, with Sam, Toby, and Amanda accompanying him as an accommodation for his dementia. Unfortunately other visitors, even family members, are restricted from visiting.

Each day since has been a rollercoaster with highs and lows from changing prognoses. We will post updates moving forward as things continue to evolve.
