    Margi,

    You are one brave young lady! We are rooting for legs to function quickly and that you can look back on this as a nightmare with a great ending.

    Thanks, Bob, for keeping us updated.

    Re: Margi got a heart!--Updated

    I'm glad Margi has access to a phone to update us. It sounds like she had a rough time of it and I'm really happy to hear she's getting better. My thoughts will continue to be with her and her family.

    I heard from Margi again via Facebook. The first is direct to me; the second is on her "wall" to everybody. To clarify for the over 40 crowd, she is using a phone to connect to the internet and is having trouble with the connections. She had a tough time with the surgery. Her heart did not start on its own so they had to keep her paced and breathing for a while. She was unconscious for twelve days but is doing better now. She expects to be out of the hospital in three weeks, at which time she'll fill us in in more detail. Bob
