Prayers, Please

Yesterday, my brother-in-law had a brain tumor removed. The same kind of surgery Teddy Kennedy had last spring. It all came on very quickly. He fell out of bed Tuesday morning, and was in surgery by Friday.

He's at Mayo's in Phoenix. The doctors feel they got the whole mass, and are optimistic that the remainder of the glioma can be eliminated through radiation treatments. We are hopeful, but the overall prognosis for glioma patients is not good for the long-term. I want him to beat the odds.....

so please remember him in your prayers, or thoughts, or whatever way you do that sort of thing.



Wine is the food that completes the meal.

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Mine are OTW - hugs to you and your family.

Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with abandon or not at all. Oregon native transplanted to Chicago....
