On June 9th, Conor was rushed from Whitianga, New Zealand to the Waikato Hospital in Hamilton for extreme migraines which had been going on for 4 weeks. Immediately upon arrival, they did a CAT scan, which found what appeared to be an 8 cm meningioma (non-cancerous brain tumour) on Conor's right frontal lobe. It was HUGE. He was put on steroids to bring down the brain swelling, and 3 days later, he went into emergency brain surgery (craniotomy) to remove the tumor. A month later, a deadly infection was found in the area where the tumor had been located. The doctors needed to operate immediately to remove the infected material. In the process, they also had to remove a part of his skull that had been killed by the infection. This video covers our fourth move of the year as we leave our friend Paul's house and move in with Conor's parents who gained an emergency visa to enter New Zealand. More episodes to come covering further surgeries and recovery, but no timeline as of yet, as we are still not out of the woods and time is constrained.

We hope these videos can help anyone else who is has a meningioma, brain tumor, or any other medical emergency. And hopefully it can also help anyone who may have their sailing dream taken away from them.
Come join my wife, dog, and I as we learn to sail and have new sailor experiences on our New Zealand made Whiting 40. We are a brand new sailing couple, and have fallen in love with the sport. Many sailing lessons have been learned so far as we learn how to become sailors. Our first mate, Pivo, keeps us out of trouble and is also learning along the way.
We are starting our voyage in New Zealand where we have been living for the last 5 years. But we are going zero to cruising because we're from the mountains of Colorado and have zero experience! Our first sail was with the sailing school, Great Escape, up in Opua, New Zealand (home the 2021 America's Cup). We hope our lessons from a beginner sailor will help you also as we set out on a multi-year sailing adventure around the world.
We are a fulltime sailing / cruising family. We love the sailing lifestyle so much! We love traveling, meeting new people, and seeing the world. We hope you come along for the adventure!
Thank you so much for having a watch! Please like this video and subscribe to our channel!

Fair winds & calm seas,
