“The time has come to inform you all that I will be taking medical leave soon. I was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor that requires surgery. While this is surely not the best news, I’m feeling the utmost confidence in my doctor and his team at the Barrow Center in Phoenix. And at this point all indications are this is benign (big exhale!).
My last day at work is scheduled to be Thursday 11/20. Fingers crossed that all goes perfectly, I should be back after winter holiday.
I welcome all prayers, white light, good vibes for me and my family.
p.s. it’s only brain surgery, not rocket science! haha
