Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep family and friends updated about Ron's journey.  We appreciate your prayers, support and words of hope and encouragement during this time.

In June 2013, Ron suffered a stroke.  In the year following, he developed a cough and shortness of breath, and after many tests, was diagnosed with idiopathic  pulmonary fibrosis.  Early in 2017, Ron started tests as an outpatient  to determine if he was eligible for a lung transplant.

Ron's breathing was becoming more difficult and on  Saturday, February 11, 2017, Ron was  admitted to University of MN Medical Center in Minneapolis.   He was diagnosed with RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus).  He  is currently in the ICU being treated for RSV and undergoing extensive testing to determine his eligibility for a  lung transplant.  The address to send cards is U of MN Medical Center, 500 Harvard St SE, ICU 4C 416, Minneapolis, MN. 55455.  For more information about Pulmonary Fibrosis and Organ Donation, scroll down on this page to "Support Message" .

We appreciate everyone's love, prayers and support.
