This is my own corner of the universe. I've been married to John for 25 years and we have 7 kids. (Darci - 24, Caitlin - 23, Casey - 21, Kiernan - 18, Camryn - 16, Taryn - 11, and Tahni - 9.) Our first granddaughter, Lillith, was born July 29, 2011. Our lives changed exponentially in April 2011 - due to John's diagnosis of diabetes, high blood pressure, and a mini-stroke. The learning curve seems steep and treacherous, but we may be getting there.
