Ruthi Sundin

As all of you know, Ruthi is a fun loving, thoughtful, kind, wonderful human.  She is also an amazing mother and wife.  

This year, Ruthi was diagnosed with gall bladder cancer.   A few weeks ago, the cancer was removed via surgery and Ruthi was given a clean bill of health.  However, after the surgery, Ruthi had edema that wouldn't subside.  She was hospitalized a few days ago to address this issue and the doctors found Ruthi had sepsis caused by an aggressive staph infection.  The doctors have been treating the infection, but Ruthi is in critical condition.  She is on dialysis and receiving additional support as well, but things have improved over the last day and a half.  Ruthi is not out of the woods yet, but we are cautiously optimistic.

We will post updates on this website to keep everyone informed of Ruthi's condition.  Please also feel free to share messages here for Ruthi, Dave, Rachel, and Justin.  It will be great to share these messages with Ruthi when she is feeling better.
