Barb is doing well so far in ICU

Sorry it took so long for this post. Barb is doing fine so far in ICU.

Her surgery started at 7:30AM, I got a call from one of the surgery nurses at 10:41AM that she was off bypass and had the new valve. She went to ICU around 11:15 and I saw her briefly at 11:45, 1:15, 3:15 and am sitting outside ICU waiting for 5:15. They allow two people to visit at a time for 15 minutes roughly every two hours. The breathing tube was removed around 3:00 PM. At 3:15 she was alert, feeling some pain and thirsty. The nurse was getting her some pain meds. I'll leave it to your imagnation what she uddered (pun intended) to me.

So glad to read your update and hear Barb is out of surgery and had woke up and talked. I thought about her most of the night. Please tell her I wish I could be there but that I feel so lucky to have such a special and dear friend like her. Barb you are like a sister to me and I love you. We will talk soon but for now rest up and know we are all thinking of you and no mooing!
