This is my Grandma Mary. Luke and I took a quick trip to New Jersey see her this past weekend, and celebrate her 80th birthday (a little late). She's a spry 80 and will probably be upset with me for broadcasting her age to the entire blogosphere.
She's been dealing with some heart issues recently. Yesterday, she underwent a cardiac catheterization to determine the extent of damage. Today she is having open heart surgery to replace her aortic valve. This is a long procedure and recovery, so please keep her in your thoughts today and through the next couple of weeks as she recovers.
Update at 5:00p: Grandma Mary came through her surgery well earlier today. She will be in the ICU for the next couple of days, and then will spend the next many weeks recovering. Please keep her in your thoughts any prayers through these next weeks of recovery.
