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. My mom has recently returned home after a stint in the hospital that lasted about 10 days. She along with her Cerebral Palsy has been diagnosed with severe asthma and COPD. She is in the end stages of COPD and now has finally realized she cannot work anymore and it is time to some much deserved relaxing. She has no idea that I am doing this website and if anyone knows my mom, she would possibly not be too happy. She is not one to ever want anyone to feel sorry for her, or to have anyone know that something is wrong with her. So we just won't tell her I did this :) My mom is now home with her cat and that is where she wants to stay for the rest of her time. We are not clear on how much time she in fact has all we know is that we want to make each day count and let her have everything that she wants. We have been told that it could be months to a year, doctors emphasize months. My mom, what can we all say about her... I am sure many have a multitude of stories and memories of her, but for me she is mom. She is my best friend, my hero. She has been working hard the last 8 years at Safeway and has touched many lives there from customers to co-workers. She has been living in Green Valley the last 8 years as well. Prior to that she lived in Tucson. I don't want to get to much into my mom's whole life... I'd love to hear stories or memories or thoughts you all have. Currently we are making the best out of a poor poker hand, but mom is doing it all with a smile on her face. So Thank you for stopping in and getting updated on Tracy. I will work hard everyday to keep this site updated on her, and answer any questions that anyone may have.
