Happy #1. Husband Walter’s mom, AKA Grandma Sugar, is doing well after receiving a new heart valve Tuesday. A team at Oschners Medical Center in New Orleans positioned the new valve and installed it using a minimally invasive procedure that is fairly new in the U.S. Grandma Sugar was back home Thursday.
Today when we visited she was still weak but breathing without the in-home oxygen set up that she was using before the trip to Oschners. I am thankful for answered prayer and modern medical miracles.
Happy #2. Walking buddy Ann and I took to a nearby indoor mall Thursday morning. Cold, wind and rain plus various medical and family events have limited our walking since December. Thanks, Ann, for the energizing physical therapy and the steadying emotional therapy.
Happy #3. Hubby declared another vacation day this morning. Breakfast out and later a latte for him and hot tea for me at Coffee Fusion. Contact with former colleagues, some retired, some not, was a plus.
Happy #5. Pizza night with hubby's homemade pizza.
