      From the information that we have been given, our optimism is fading quite quickly.  From the start of radiation 3 weeks ago, the largest of the tumors has grown 7x larger.  My dad is meeting with doctors now getting some more information, but nothing that has been said is positive.  She is on medication for the pain, and I have not been able to talk to her yet.  We all know she is a fighter, and I have no doubt that she will fight as hard as she can.

      I need some help from all of you.  I do not have her facebook password, and will not be able to post through my wife's until this evening.  Can someone please put a link on there for me? 

      Also, if anyone has the web address of the online support group she is on, can you please email it to [email protected] .  I would like to make a post there on her behalf. 

      Thank you for all of your support, as it is definitely needed now. 




      This is from Brandon Haley, what was printed on Caring Bridge….Let's keep Linda in our thought and prayers….I cannot believe this……

      Take Care,
