Update on my friend Bobbie
January 7, 2010 9:16pm CST
She had surgery today. Two bi-pass surgeries and another to replace a valve. They discovered a small hole in her heart that they mended with a stitch. She is sedated and on a ventilator until late tomorrow or early Saturday. Thank you so much for the prayers. Keep 'em coming.

I have been praying for your friend and will continue to do so. It sounds as though she is still very sick but things are going as well as can be expected and that is good. I hope and pray that she will be as good as new before too long. My uncle had a similar operation years ago and although he has to take medication and good care of himself he is doing really well so let us all keep positive that Bobbie will come through this and be fine again.

I will keep your friend Bobbie in my prayers. Tell her to stay strong. My husband had a double bypass 20 years ago. This is major surgery, but it is not the boogie bear it used to be. They have made so many advances in heart surgery, He went in for a stent in another artery that was clogged a few days after Christmas. That was a piece of cake compared to full bypass surgery. I am sure Bobbie will be up and at it in no time. You must also stay strong so you can cheer Bobbie on. Try not to worry. Get lots of rest and eat properly so you can continue to be upbeat for your friend. God bless.
