Quickly… I wanted to let you all know Nick had a second brain surgery on Tuesday the 3rd of July we are back here at Froedtert with some complications…

It’s been one hell of a morning is all I can say… but I feel better he is here now and they can take care of him.

I tried to keep this all on the down low not make a big deal about it… but that is not how it is going to happen…I have not worked much since he arrived home a day and a half after his procedure…way too soon to be put in my hands for his care…

I can’t post or if I do get a chance to be on my Phone/computer it isn’t much…just to check/delete emails and I thought by now he’d be on the mend…and all would go on…

His brain is leaking and is under a lot of pressure… so I’m sure there will be yet another surgery soon hopefully

Please say a prayer for him…

So I am asking you to be patient with me and I’ll do my best to keep up on the things that really must be done..

I know I’ve promised some posts and videos in my FB groups and other things as well but this is why I’ve been absent and might be for a bit…

Thanks in advance for your understanding…

    Nick will be added to my prayers and you and all your family at this very stressful time. I went through cancer treatment this past winter for a form of leukemia and at the same time my son-in-law was also being treated for cancer. What you learn is that almost nothing else matters but family. Projects go on the “back burner” because appointments at the clinic, surgeries, blood transfusions, chemo treatments, reactions to meds, all those things take precedence. Take a deep breath, if needed, just put some things on hold. I have completely looked at my life and how I thought I should be living it and made some changes that lowered stress. I should add that I’m in remission but my son-in-law is still in a battle with his cancer. Remember the words of Scarlet O’Hara…..”tomorrow is another day”. Things will get better, they may be different and that is certainly the case in our family but because of family and friends we get through to that other day. Oh, and always having a stitching project to keep my hands busy was better than some medicines I was given. 😉

    Lisa, pray. My son came home from Duke University Medical Center last week after 3 brain surgeries, 1 facial nerve surgery and a month in the hospital. He was released the day after the 2nd surgery and retuned via emergency room within 36 hrs. Complications, pressure, staff infection, you name it. At least 5 church denominations praying, friends and strangers. We prayed him home. He is making great strides. In my mind a miracle – God pulled him through. Keeping you both in our prayers – God will pull him through.

    Lisa, please put us on your back burner for now. So what if we finish later than planned. We’re all grown ups here. We all have life to live. You have priorities right now that do not include us. Yes. Thank you so much for thinking of us at a time like this and for updating us. Get back to us from time to time to let us know how he’s doing and how you are. I for one, have you both in my prayers for a successful out come. I will be here when you need reinforcements. God bless and take care of yourself. Looking forward to your return soon.

    So VERY, VERY sorry to hear about Nick’s issues. I enjoy your blog posts and have recently wondered how things were. However, please do not think that anything you do online is nearly as important as taking care of your family. Everyone will be content to give you the time and space you need to handle the most important things in your life: your husband and family. We completely understand. Prayers to you.
