I can breathe now

Thank you thank you thank you.  Your prayers lifted us both, gave us strength, and pulled us through.  Sudden death is rare but can occur within the first 48 hours so she will stay and be monitored but her surgeon is very pleased with the result.   Arrived at 11:30, emergencies developed with others, and she wasn't taken down to surgery until 5:30 pm.  It took much longer than expected and we got to see her afterward at 9 pm.  In a few weeks she should see a great difference.  This started a year ago when we rushed her to the hospital on Christmas Day. 
Everyone is treating her like a queen, remembering what she went through a few months ago.  I am still jittery and will take one more pill tonight to get a good sleep.  I've been on edge for months, anxious, fearful, feeling helpless.  I will still be for a short time until I feel comfortable that she is out of danger. I'm sure much of this is also related to menopause since I've been a hair trigger emotional crab for a long time.  In fact, I'm having a hot flash at this very moment.  And Kozy Shack rice pudding.  And Dove.  I may take a little break and try to unwind for a few days.
I can't thank you all enough for your support, prayers, good wishes, emails, comments, and tolerance for my moods.

But I will say again, thank you.
Sleep well.

Wonderful to hear good news, I am so happy things are going well for your Sister, you and Family.
I read your last post I am so sad the post office is not what it used to be, I am not racist either, the post office in downtown Mpls tried to tell me the green stamps were special trees for Christmas I am no fool they are having a hard time getting rid of them, that is their problem, I am with you if you ask for something it is your choice not theirs, I am tired of other people and races trying to change my ways, I am old and set in them so they can take a flying leap at the moon.
You hang in there Girlfriend.

Thank God, the doctors and research in heart conditions. I will continue to keep Carole and you in my prayers for her full recovery. I'm sorry you both had to wait so long for the procedure, but it's done and now on to healthier, happier times.
Take the day off, unless you feel better keeping busy. Eat, sleep and be merry and peaceful.

I'm so very happy to read that your sister did so well! You know...no apologies are necessary...stress and hormones and stress hormones :) Can do a lot to a person, the thing that is most important is: we are your friends and we are here for you! Take that pill and cozy down for a nap! God is good!
