Default Sister's Heart Surgery

Think of me and my sister tomorrow as she is having a heart valve replaced. She lives in the U.P. so I thought she'd come down to Milwaukee but they do heart surgery in Marquette so she can stay up there. I'm the worried one and I can't get up there until Thursday but my other sister is there and her daughter, Becky, and cousins. She is 62 and has had lung surgery due to having TB as a teenager so I am concerned.

For those of you who know me, she is the opposite. Quite a personality, but very calm, slow to do things, takes her time, very relaxed, very slow to anger, even though we look very much alike, where I am the run around energy kid, she is so calm and collected! I called her to say "Good Luck" and she says, fine I'll see you Thursday! I wish I could be that calm and relaxed, just once in my life! Think of us! Susie

Thank you so much for all the good thoughts! Now the surgery is tomorrow at 6:00 a.m. They did a preliminary look around today and they were pleased with the condition of the heart and the arteries so they say it is definitely a go!

The heart valve is very bad, does not close properly at all, actually surprised that she hasn't had problems, which worries them. She's as calm as a cucumber and Becky and I are probably wrecks! I'll keep you posted, you folks are the absolute best! Susie

P.S. Thanks for the smile, Mike!
