This is Clare-I will be the family member that will be updating the CaringBridge site as often as I can. My mom is scheduled for open heart surgery at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto, CA on Wednesday, May 24. She is expected to be in the hospital for 1 week post-surgery if there are no complications. I know she will appreciate messages of support and I will be making sure she gets them. Thank you for checking in!
