We knew it was only a matter of time until my grandmother would no longer be with us. After years of living with a weak heart, her health slowly began to deteriorate a few years ago. She lived in an assisted living facility that was absolutely wonderful to her the last few years of her life.
Two years ago, my husband had a near fatal car accident on his drive home from visiting our daughter; this accident was due to his blood sugar dropping dangerously low. I was out of town when everything occurred, and we are truly blessed that he didn’t injure other drivers on the road that morning.

20 years ago I underwent my first brain operation. I was 19 years old when I began developing severe headaches which sometimes blurred my vision. As time passed, my headaches occurred more frequently and at times, I would blackout.
Doctors first thought my symptoms could’ve been related to a more serious vision problem, or possibly from the few minor concussions I had experienced as a kid. After several tests including a CT scan, the doctors found a benign brain tumor pressing on my frontal lobe.
