Sunday afternoon, June 2, 2013


For those who may not have heard, Mom had triple bypass emergency open-heart surgery on Friday night. As you can see from this picture, Mom is actually doing so well, here she is sitting up and reading the front section of The Washington Post! She’s amazing.

Thank you for your prayers – all are appreciated. If all goes well, we’ll bring Mom home sometime this week. I’ll keep you posted.

Peace friends,
