I'm so happy to report to you, dear friends, that my mother-in-love made it through the open heart surgery today without any complications and the doctor says her prognosis is excellent!! She is intensive care now and will be for the next few days. If all goes well she will be released from the hospital next Tuesday. She has a long recovery period ahead of her but I am confident that she will do fine. I will be taking turns with my sister-in-law in caring for her during the day so I probably won't be posting as much as usual. Thank you so much for all of your concern and most importantly, your prayers. This has been a very, very long day so it is off to bed I go!
