Welcome to my CaringBridge website. I am using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. I am NOT wanting donations. I am using this only for informational purposes. I do NOT want to use public forums like Facebook and would rather use this site to keep you all informed. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. This is my story: on Friday Sept 2, 2017 I met with a neurosurgeon and received a confirmed diagnosis of a Meningioma. A small brain tumor just left of center in the frontal lobe of my brain. So explains my frequent middle of the night headaches that wake me up, the strangely pretty auras I occasionally get, left eye pain and some blurry vision. I think I knew it was something like that even before they confirmed it. Rod and I, along with our sons Shane and Randy, and all of our family covet your prayers. We are weighing options and will use this site so we can share updates and details in one spot. Thank you for visiting . Love you all.
