    Hi everybody, yes I am finally back. For those of you who do not know, I had triple bypass surgery April 20th. Since then, I have been hospitalized 3 times for complications, that were not the result of the heart surgery. I developed pancreatitis, colitis, and illius and a minor array of other things that I am being treated for. My heart surgeon, who by the way I call Dr. HeartThrob, said my heart stopped as soon as they opened me up, and I was on the verge of a major heart attack that I would not have survived!!. Well, I am happy to say that I am here to talk about it!! Praise God!!!! He had the whole situation in hand!!! I just want to thank everyone who responded to my daughters plea for cards and prayers, what a wonderful surprise when I finally got home and found all the wonderful good wishes, and lovely gifts I received from so many of you!!! It surely brought tears to my eyes, and joy to my heart!!! I am still in recovery and will be for several more months, but am feeling better everyn day, and finally got to sew at my machine for the first time today!!! What a thrill that was.
    What a great bunch of people we have on this board who really care about each other!!! I love you all!!!
