Hold A Good Thought...

Please hold a good thought and send some healing energy the way of a member of our family. Tomorrow, Joe will be undergoing quintuple coronary artery bypass surgery. Many thanks...

: : Update: Joe is out of surgery and in the ICU. I don’t have all the details, but a quintuple bypass was changed to a triple. I can’t even tell you if that is good or bad. All I know is that Joe is off the respirator and coming around.

I do know it was a comfort knowing folks around the globe were sending Joe their good wishes. Thank you so very much.

: : Update Two: Joe is home and continuing to recuperate. This is definitely a tortoise and the hare situation, where slow and steady will win the race. Thanks again for all your care and concern!

Hi Sue -
Joe is continuing to recover at home. He is a tough guy which is good - - - and bad!
There's a stereotype that men are challenging patients. Hmmm... I wonder where that idea came from?
Thank you!
