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. However I’m having a procedure called TAVR, please Google it, to replace an aortic valve which isn’t working that well. Now you all know how much I enjoy talking with each of you but following the surgery my phone will be turned off for an extended period while I recover. My boyfriend David will be posting updates on my recovery on this site. You may leave words of encouragement but I can not reply to your message. David will not post routine events and please remember that on this site with me no news is good news.
