Dear Family and Friends, 

Our mom is taking a brief hiatus from interior designing because she herself needs some remodeling. She's going to have a wall removed, a valve released, and some other demolition, reconstruction and bypass work done to her heart. In medical jargon; Septal Myectomy, a blocked artery, PDA ‘Posterior Descending Artery’ and Mitral Valve repair/release.

The surgery is taking place on July 9th 2020 at 9:00 am.

In February, after a violent bout of pneumonia, doctors discovered that she had a congenital heart defect and heart murmur. Serious safety code violations!!!!!!!

Mom is so excited for her remodel because the “contractor” says she is going to love it so much and will finally be up to code. The "contractor" says the lead time for this remodel is approximately 6-8 weeks. Fingers crossed.
Want to help? 
We knew you would because so many have already offered. Here is a list of ways to help:

1) Prayers and good wishes. Samina relishes positive vibes! 

2) Diet approved food (especially ready to eat fruit and vegetables) - Samina has spent many years cooking for others, maybe she needs a short break? (

3) Time – Call Samina! 

4) Monetary contributions in lieu of flowers will be greatly appreciated – This would be the best way to really help mom. 
Please visit her GoFundMe page

5) Running errands (contact Becky at 412-498-1264 or if you have an hour or 2 that you can help out)
And all the clever upgrades we didn't think about
As much as she needs visits, Covid makes this difficult. Face time and zoom will be a better idea once power is restored and the permitting process begins.Caring bridge is a great way to stay up to date even when Mom is too tired to talk. UPDATE PICS WILL BE POSTED after the subcontractors are paid. ;)
To arrange coordinated visits please contact Becky Datta ( or 412-498-1264) Masks will be required.
Thanks for loving and supporting Mom through this endeavor.

Aftab, Star, Yulia and Becky
