I’m keeping this short because there’s not much to report. Yesterday (Wednesday), Marilyn successfully went through cardiac catheterization procedure at Beth Israel hospital in Boston. She just went into surgery (1pm). Doctors first must drain fluid buildup found in her lungs before proceeding with heart valve surgery. They still hope it’s a repair job rather than replacement. Marilyn is in good spirits but very, very tired. I’m heading back to Beth Israel from our Uxbridge home after I’ve taken care of our four furry kids who miss Mom. I’ll try to keep all of you up to date as best as possible. This will be the first time I’ve actually posted something without Marilyn’s help. I’m also posting updates when possible on Facebook. Thanks to all for your prayers and support.

  2. Thank you Gary:) you both are in my prayers….sending lots of healing prayers and comfort too…she is one tough cowgirl:) Tell her to hang in there and Gary be sure to grab some rest….see if they can give you a bed at the hospital. When I went through surgery for the bc, I was in the hospital for a week…they gave Bill a comfy bed to use in my room each night…it truly helped us both:) You did great uploading your first post too! Give M a full report that we are all thinking of her!


  3. Have two candles lit…one for Marilyn, one for you. You have my support no matter what, and if you need someone to talk to, you know my email. My very best to you both!
