Message:  I found this out yesterday, from Mamie, and she told me to put it on the board. She's still having trouble with the "pooter".

I told her that there was no way until I talked to Jerry and Brenda and the rest of the family knew.

Now I'm going to try and get this right but forgive me if I miss a few things.

Mamie has had a blockage to her heart for quite awhile , now and it has caused her to have pains in her chest , anytime she did anything.   Her Doctor told her that she would just have to stop doing so much, because surgery would be to risky. You can just imagine how happy that made her.

She went to a different Doctor yesterday and he seems to think that, not only is the surgery doable, but that he thinks there is just a minor risk involved. He said that he just did the same surgery to a lady that is somewhere around 103-105 years of age and there were no problems. I think it involves putting a , I'm going to spell this wrong, "stint" in that blocked valve.

Her other Dr. said that he didn't think that her veins could handle it. She and Jerry talked it over and think that the risk is worth it because she doesn't have a very active or happy life now. The fact that Jerry is so positive about it makes me feels better.

Anyway she is to have the surgery Tuesday around 11am or so Texas Time.

I'm trying to figure a way to say this without getting hurt.... Anytime a person has this kind of surgery, at least to me, it's something serious. ( Here comes the hard part.) When someone is, uh... getting up there,... uh... in years..... Like say, oh , around 90 or so, the risk might be a little higher.


Well, just wanted to ask for your prayers for Mamie. I love her, you love her, and , well, just pray that everything goes ok.

I'll be there with my cell phone and will call someone that can post on the board , how things are going.

Another positive thing is that the Doctor said that she may be able to go home the next day.

You know.... me and Jerry love her bread puddin' with lemon sauce. If she really loved us, she could make some the night before, so we would have something to snack on while waiting.

Thanks in advance,
