Welcome to my CaringBridge website. Jack and I are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support, prayers, and words of encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Here's the lowdown: for several months, I've had digestive issues: bloating, heartburn, whatever. I have also started filling out like I am pregnant--which I am NOT. After a CT scan, a mass in my abdomen has been discovered. It's big, that's all I can say right now. Friday, the 17th, I will be in Albuquerque to have it removed and biopsied. More news when it is available.
