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.


In late August, dad had a catastrophic stroke while visiting his beloved Northern Idaho.  He was admitted to Sandpoint General Hospital, later transferred to Kootenai Hospital in Coeur d'Alene.  The article below includes additional challenges due to COVID.  Dad was transported by Medevac to Chicago and was admitted to Marionjoy Stroke Rehabilitation Hospital.  On September 30, he moved to Oak Trace to continue his care in Downers Grove, IL.  While he already wants to get "back to work", his physical progress has been limited at best.

Being in the Chicago area allows for many family members to visit with him.  A shout out to all of the grandkids who have stepped up, as well as Ashley's in-laws, the Berkshires and his former caregiver,  Irena.  All have been so amazing. 

If you'd like to send a note his way, the address is Oak Trace Health Center, 250 Village Dr., Room 2205, Downers Grove, IL  60516.  Thanks to all who have sent good wishes his way to date.    Love, Cathie and Colleen
