It turns out Mom's Thanksgiving plans have changed yet again (this is her son writing).
Instead of dining on the traditional and delicious Thanksgiving offerings, Mom will be selecting from a menu that includes Jell-o, pudding, and Saltines. The nurses in the Cardiovascular Unit will have it no other way, quite frankly.
Mom is in the Cardiovascular Unit recovering from an unscheduled and surprise quadruple-bypass open-heart surgery. She went in on Monday for check-ups, and was told that she wasn't leaving until they addressed the scary blockage they discovered. Surgery commenced on Tuesday morning.
We've all known her heart was very beautiful; turns out, it's very strong too. The doctors were impressed with its strength and expect a very quick and full recovery. She's in good moods, upset only that she's "inconveniencing" all of us.
We expect her to resume her talented creating activities very shortly.
None of my Mom's card-making skills were passed to me. I won't speak for my sisters on this, but let's just say that crayon is our weapon of choice for making cards. Needless to say, we need some help.
If you'd be so kind, please create a card for my Mom. I know you card wizards really like creating and sending actual cards, but a scanned version sent to firstname.lastname@example.org would be meaningful as well.
Thanks very much,
