The following words are copied from Ken Walter's Caring Bridge Site. I am not sure who wrote them, but they are not my words, but the words of Ken's family!
Ken has been having ongoing issues with his right foot and leg since June. He saw a few Orthopedics who thought the problem was related to a back injury and previous surgery two years ago. The past few weeks the numbness and spasms became greater and more frequent - even traveling up his arm. Ken starting experiencing numbness in his right hand and arm and extreme weakness in his legs.
During surgery the doctor removed the tumor from Ken's brain and it was determined to be a stage 4 astrocytoma. In a CB update, a" family member said, "This was by no means the diagnosis we were all hoping for, but as we said earlier it's only the beginning of the fight, not the end." http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/kenwaltner
After just a few days in the hospital with therapy and many prayers and lots of love, Ken was able to update his own Caring Bridge today. What a blessing to me!
