Day 198: Barb's Terrible Horrible Very Bad No Good Day



Some of you have asked about how my sister-in-law Barb is donig since her surgery, and I'm very happy to report that she continues to improve! I described Barb's day back in May when she came to Brian's graduation as "horrible", but something you should know about Barb is what an incredible optimist she is! Dollars-to-donuts, she'd see the positive in her being hospitalized and finding out she needed the aortic valve replacement. Me? I'd grump and whine with the best of 'em! Barb's been going to cardiac rehabilitation twice a week and gradually noting the steady, but of course, too slow, move toward improvement. This is the same sister-in-law who was on our nightmarish houseboat vacation with us last August--- when my brother hit a rock, and we had to be rescued from the boat in the dark by Mad Max. Some say Doug and I should be avoided on vacations, but I want to point out that nothing bad happened to Brian, Dianna and I this past May in Mexico!

Thank you so much for the update. I'm glad to hear she is improving. Gotta love a person who can find the positive in having to have surgery! She'll outlive us all!

The layout is great. All the neat details and wonderful journaling. Your title is inspired as well.
