My cousin Wendy's nine-year-old daughter, Katie, has been diagnosed with a diffusely infiltrative brain stem glioma. Wendy's family lives in Tallulah Falls in North Georgia, and she and Katie are staying with my Aunt Paula and Uncle Terry in Atlanta while Katie receives daily radiation treatments at Piedmont Hospital.
When we were growing up, Wendy and I lived behind each other - we shared a pool between our two houses. Our dads are brothers, and she is very dear to me.
Married for 27 years to Robert, three kids: Will (23), Vivian (20) and Dots (17) ~~~~

Things I enjoy: playing duplicate bridge, working NY Times crossword puzzles, reading good books, entertaining, visiting with friends, planning trips, traveling, playing board games, spending time with family, cooking, keeping up with old friends ~~~ happy to correspond with other parents about raising a child with special needs
I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
