I have missed you all so very, very, much! I have spent the last two months in Hell and this "angel" can promise you that Heaven is a far nicer place to be!

I was rushed to the hospital on Dec. 24th and ended up staying for 7 weeks!!! I had emegency open heart surgery for a quadruple by-pass and then the complications started! It was unbelievable all the things that happened to me! I was the youngest person on the ward. It is a genetic thing! I eat healthily, exercise, take suppliments and meditate and I end up with coronary artery disease! Go figure! Well, I suppose the writing was on the wall because my brother had the same operation a few months ago--thankfully minus all the complications that I endured.
Apparently I never had a heart attack per se, however my coronary arteries were all nearly totally blocked and it was a miracle that I was able to function with only a very small amount of blood going to my heart. The doctors said that my
my heart is very strong from years of exercising and now I have new plumbing!

After 7 weeks of hospital I went to a friend's house to recuperate for two weeks and during that time I had an RN visit me daily to change my dressings etc.

I have now just arrived at our new home. I left our previous one on Dec. 24 and have come home to a brand new one! My daughter Shannon shouldered most of the move herself! Packing, notifying, organizing, cleaning, orchestrating...She even handled the affairs re my business!--while she's teaching full time, working on her Master's degree, has an e-commerce business, and had her Mom almost die just a few weeks after her fiance's father did die! My other daughter would come over and help out whenever she could. She was very helpful to both me and her sister. I am so blessed to have such loving and responsible daughters.

I am still quite weak and it will take some time to get back on my feet. Shannon would read the loving messages to me from you who have touched my heart during my time here at Passions. You helped to keep my spirits up and I truly appreciated your loving, caring, and encouraging words.

My computer was just set up last night and I haven't got a new email address as yet. I'll post it when I have one. I read all your responses to Shannon's announcements and up-date re my condition.
You are all the REAL angels!!!

Again my thanks for your prayers, love and continued friendship.

I have a strong and healthy heart with brand new pipes! I'm now set to embrace the next half of my life with enthusiasm and gratefulness!

Love Always,
Linda/EA/Earth Angel

Well, I was going to ask "what happened" but I think you just filled in all the details!  Don't hit that brick wall - let those wonderful daughters care for you, and build your strength back up as you can!  'Cause you know reading poetry can be a real handfull a times!  We've missed you! Welcome HOME!

Linda glad you are back and wanted to share a little cute story with you about my Dad, he had heart surgery and they used a pig's value to repair his heart.  He swore if he lived he would never eat pork again, in honor of that pig, and he never did!     He was given a new lease on life and actually was at least ten years younger having had that surgery, but I remember at the time, it was gruesome!  Welcome back - and enjoy that new lease on life.  Settle in with your new poetry book and relax and get better soon.

(does happy dance in tears of joy) Oh Linda, just turning on the computer just now to see you've returned has literally left me flooding in tears to know all our angel hugs came through for you and now you are sounding as if you're all brand-new yet the same angel as ever, yay! (wipes tears) I have thought of you too much and have prayed for you every night as I also have with Auguste, and knew heavens angels would reach out to their Earth Angel! (big angel friendship hugs)



God Bless You, dearest friend, I am so happy for you and can't wait to read all your new poetry, yay! (jumps up and down with wings flapping like a hummingbird on a first date)



Love,
Noah Eaton

Oooooohhhhhh...Linda, I also want to add that your Shannon truly has the golden angel heart you do! Reading her updates about you and reading just now of how she helped with a majority of the move made me cry knowing how blessed of a family you have and how I know the love you share between mother and daughter is angelic forever!



God Bless You Both, and I hope soon Shannon joins in the poetic tradition of your family, yay!



Love,
Noah Eaton

Hello sweet Linda Lou!! You just don't know what a thrill and joy it was for me to open up Announcements and see my wonderful little Earthey Angel friend on here!! I'm so sorry for all that you have endured, yet so happy that you are back "home" with us. We love you so much, sweet friend.

Take care of yourself and let your darling daughters help take care of you. Thank them for me and give them a hug from me, too.
Heart hugs to you all,
Ethel Mae

Oh, my goodness! All of your well-wishes and loving words are greatly appreciated. Every endearing mot is medicine that aids me in my recovery. My body is incredibly weak, but my spirit is strong and I look forward to the day when I am able to participate more fully at PiP.

Sending much love to you all,

My goodness Linda, you've been through a lot ... what a wonderful thing to hear that you are recovering well, and that your daughters were able to help with so much during such a difficult time.

"Welcome Home" and take care. It's great to see you here again!

I felt so badly... *bratty grin* You always offer comforting wings... and all I have are these hoop skirts that make sitting difficult to impossible... *G*

It is SO good to have you back, dear lady... so good to know that you're recovering... may you receive as many smiles as you've given so generously. *S*
