Rita is doing great! My sister, her family, and I want to thank each of you for your prayers and well wishes. Rita came through surgery fine and will most likely be released for home tomorrow afternoon. She was scheduled to go into surgery at 10 a.m. but wasn't taken in until 1 p.m. Around 9 o'clock tonight, I received a phone call from Rita's daughter, Jewel, with the news Rita had just come out and all seems to have gone well! Just a bit ago, I called Jewel once again. Jewel said she and Rita had just had a conversation by phone. That was good to hear!
Once again, thanks for your prayers and concern. You all out did yourselves by showing so much care and support when we went through dad's heart attack and surgery. I've seen you all, in our blog circle, encourage and pray for so many others in their times of need. What a blessing you all have been to me. Now if you don't mind keeping Rita in your prayers this week, as the first few days of recovery from any surgery are the worst.
