Sad News...

    My mom had her valve replacement and triple by-pass surgery today. The operation lasted five hours, and they had just gotten her to her room at 8:00PM when she went into cardiac arrest. The doctor tried everything, even opening up her chest and massaging her heart. He tried a full half hour, but there was no life. She was gone and he was so devestated to have lost his patient.

    My mom passed away at 8:30PM this evening. She was almost 80--next month. She was a very good woman and a very faithful JW. The blood issue never even became a problem during surgery.

    This is a very emotional and sad time for me--especially getting this news so late in the evening.
