Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Barb had open heart bypass surgery on January, 21 2017 after suffering a heart attack. Barb continues to be in hospital, in and out of ICU. It was felt that a caringbridge site would be helpful to keep friends and family updated on her story. Barb continues to be in ICU at this time. Her kidneys had a tough time functioning and she receives dialysis once a day and seems to be tolerating it well. Barb is well cared for, she has a feeding tube (which she does not like), and she continues IV treatment. It has been an up and down road so far, but she again seems stable. We will continue to post updates to keep you all informed.
