As some of you may know, I have been absent from the boards for quite awhile. I have shared part of that reason on other posts (part of the bargining committee for our union) but the real reason is a serious medical crisis my youngest daughter is facing. Without going into a lot of detail, she is facing 3 procedures this summer to try to correct a serious malformation in her brain. These procedures are neccessary to stop blood flow to the malformation. She has the potential to partially lose her eyesight. Eventually she will need surgery to remove the malformation. We would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
