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, praying, and following this journey with us. I will try to bring everyone up to speed since Feb. 5th, 2019 as it's been quite the roller coaster. I will have an EC IC bypass of the Left Middle Cerebral Artery on July 2, 2019 (more on that terminology as I blog). I'm hoping to document as much as a I can in hopes it will help some one else going through this or something similar. I'll be able to blog periodically up until the surgery day and then I'll have Aly & Mackena (my daughters take over). Between the two of them I'm hoping they'll remember to slap some make up on me and adjust hair or lack there of accordingly. :) If you have specific questions and are going through this as well feel free to ask and I'll answer as much as I can or seek further answers. My research has been extensive on this procedure maybe too much. I have an excellent medical team at Duke Hospital, NC. I'm certain this procedure won't be easy but even more certain I'll get through this with the support and love that has already been so evident from so many. Thank you! Love to all!~ Nikki
