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. We are using this site because the response to Ralph's illness has been extraordinary and the support of friends and family amazing, however Connie cannot respond to all of the texts, emails, and phone calls personally at this time. Thank you for visiting.
Sunday, October 9th, we took Ralph to the emergency room as he had been suffering with vertigo and some confusion. They discovered a 5cm brain tumor on the left side of Ralph's frontal lobe. Ralph is having a biopsy today, October 12, and we should know more after the results come in this week. Ralph will be facing radiation and chemotherapy. He has a long road ahead. Ralph is expected to be released from Northside Hospital on Friday or Saturday. He is extremely tired and will be recovering from the biopsy surgery, so we are asking that visits be limited until he returns home to allow him the rest he needs to recover quickly.
