Our life has been very busy with trip after trip to Spokane since March. Rudy’s taken 5 radiation treatments so far along with chemo pills, no nausea at all so far!

This is not what we’d planned for this year at all! Rudy was planning on retiring the end of May and doing allot of golfing daily from now on, but God has sent us down a different road. I’m told God will not give us more than we can handle, but why?

There’s been allot of stress and crying in our family. Rudy wants us all to do what we normally would be doing, but driving to Spokane 5 days a week changes our schedules. That leaves only weekends to get things done.

We’ve been very fortunate to have some of his co-workers driving him to Spokane part of the time for me. Everyone has been so supportive!

Life is forever changed! Before March 15th, I had never even heard the words : Glioblastoma Multiforme, let alone to hear Rudy had it! Malignant and trying to prolong his life as long as they can. New treatments are being used and we’re praying we have Rudy with us for many more years.

Here’s a little info on the kind of brain tumor Rudy had removed.


God is taking care of us and the doctors.

    The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for its existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun. ~Napoleon Hill

    Dad is our entire family’s “strong oak” and we all must continue to think positively, pray and support ALL of us through this time. This is hard on all of us and we all cope differently. Although I am over 2700 miles away, please know I think of everyone every day, all day long.

    We all think of you often Mona! Being so far away from us has got to be really hard, but we’re only a call away, any time you need to talk to us!

    Dad is our oak and trying real hard to think positively right now! Love you!
