      Hi Lisa!

      I am excited...if you are in Boston the 23rd and 24th I would REALLY love to meet you in person. I will be having my myectomy the 22nd at Tufts-NEMC. I missed you on the June date but if you are here to visit with the clinic docs I would sure love to have you stop on by to say hello in person. I am in surgery the morning of the 22nd, so if you are around on the 24th come say hello and meet my family too. Hope to see you!

        Lisa, Enjoy your time off and here's hoping for a great checkup. We are leaving for Ohio - visiting family- tomorrow. I will be home late Monday. You have my cell phone # if you need to reach me. I promise to check it at least once a day. Mostly, I plan to sit under the big maple tree with a book. No internet for me for a while! Reenie, glad you're back, Linda

                Hello everyone.

                Sorry I was MIA for a few days...but sometimes I guess we all need a little break...YES even me.

                Well here is the story of my trip to Boston...
                Good news and other news that is actually good too...(but may not seem it)

                My daughter was screened and appears to be clear at this time - we will re-screen in 1 year...but for now

                My niece - is getting her 1st ICD in a few weeks. It was felt that with our family history and her symptoms that it is best for her to have a device. She is doing well with the news...we will be heading back to Boston in 2 weeks for the implant. We will then have 3 generations of familily with ICD's -I bet that is not that common!

                I visited with Doug who looked great 24 hrs post procedure!
                Thats whats new here....

                Best to all!

                  Hi Lisa,
                  Glad to hear Stacey is going forward with her safety net! Keep us posted and let us know how she is doing...of course, she could always post and let us know herself.

                  Good news on Becca! She is such a sweety, can't help but want to pinch her cute cheeks. Let her know we are all excited about her news.

                  Love and Kisses,
                  Sharon
