Catching up---- My recovery is going well. Check ups have been good. The cardiologists will see me later this month. It feels good to be working somewhat and getting back into a routine. I have had lots of care and thoughtful people hanging around. Thank you!
I have no memory of my cardiac arrest or that day and even have amnesia for two weeks prior. From waking in the hospital to recovering at home, much is a blur. If I saw you or talked to you, I may have forgotten. Sorry!
Getting out is going pretty good considering I need a chauffeur everywhere. Thank you for all the rides and offers! Friends and family are such a blessing. Obviously, this past Thanksgiving and upcoming Christmas are extra special to our family.
Thanks again for the prayers and well wishes! Merry Christmas! See you around!

Thank you SO much for all your kind, loving and prayer-filled messages. It is truly uplifting! All the prayers said were definitely answered as I am healing and going home on Wednesday. The whole situation was overwhelming, and I cannot remember very much at all. That's probably a good thing! Please call me or stop by my home! I am excited to see everyone! I send my love back to you all!

Lisa is still making a miraculous recovery. Today she had a MRI of her head and her heart. The doctors believe they determined what caused the cardiac arrest so that won't continue to be a mystery. She also had her temporary pacemaker/defibulator replaced with a permanent one. She will still have to work on regaining more short-term memory, but she's up and talking and may get released from the hospital in a few days. Praise the Lord!!
