Hi friends and family,

I thought I would let everyone know about my recent appendicitis and surgery to remove my appendix on Christmas Day. The stomach pain came upon so unexpected and thankfully I knew something just was not right. Tim and I decided to go to the ER and have it checked out. After a CAT scan was done, I was told that it was my appendix and that I would have to have it removed that day before it could rupture. Thankfully the surgery went smooth and well! 

I have had to miss work and recover at home and still have another one to two weeks to go. I was thinking why not create this fund since some have asked how they could help. I know that any help in donations for my medical expenses would be so helpful as we will have to pay our deductible for 2019 only for it to start all over again now that we are in the new year. I know money is tight for everyone after Christmas just as it is with us as well.

I can't wait to get back to playing and picking up Colette soon as she has been so wonderful with letting me rest. Thank you for any support and I hope to get together and see you soon.

with much love,
Vanessa Coburn
