Sorry for not making commenting on LJ’s lately. I’m sure your projects are all great and worthy of much praise!

Iv’e been devoting all my time to my wife the past 9 days! My wife Carol had open heart surgery on the 13th and is still in the hospital recovering. She had a triple bypass and her recovery is going slow but ok so far. We have no family members here in FL so it’s just me taking care of everything. Our two sons did come to visit early on but had to go back to NC to return to work. Hopefully Carol will be home soon and then I can care for her at the house along with what rehabilitation she may need.

I’m looking forward for her to have a complete recovery and then maybe we can get back to our normal everyday life.

Keep up the good work guys and gals! I’m off to see what I can dig up in the ice box to eat!

Also my best wishes for your wife’s recovery. You need to attend to her as I am certain you are. I can’t imagine the emotion experiences you have been going thru. A few years back my wife had a breast cancer scare. I was a ball of nerves. Thankfully it was nothing. Yours is far more serious. Just know that we are all pulling for you and your dear wife!

That’s pretty scary. My whole family of males have experienced heart issues. It’s a life changer. Hope she recovers quickly. Hang in there.

Both Aurora and I send our very best wishes for Carol and a full recovery.
Fairly serious surgery by the sounds of it.

Make sure you don’t loose the can opener before she returns home !

All my best to you and Carol, Tony. Modern medicine’s a wonderful thing. Dad had a triple, back in ninety-eight. That was twenty-one years ago. He turned ninety-four, last week. The heart is the one thing he doesn’t complain about.

Hi Tony. Nancy and I are still thinking of Carol and were hoping she would be home by now. Sounds like things are going in the right direction just taking a little longer. Let’s pray she gets back soon and you can start on your honey-do list.
Remember to take care of yourself in the meantime. It’s a challenging time but we are here for support.
If I was out there I would help you in any way with some of your chores and could whip up some of my famous chili.
Say hello to Carol for us.
Nancy and Dave
