Hi Everyone,

Many of you remember my quit buddy, Bonnie (Bjj). I heard from her some time ago that she would be undergoing surgery, then nothing for so long that I was quite frantic. I did not know if I would be violating her confidentiality to post it, so I never did.

I finally received a letter, which she has invited me to share with you. I hope you will give thanks as I do, for her miraculous recovery, and post your good wishes to her! Here is her letter:

Quote:
Hi Margaret,
Thanks for the concern! I just got out of the hospital Thursday evening and am just now feeling up to checking some of my emails. The angioplasty went horribly wrong. A cardiac artery was ruptured. I was resuscitated at least two times. I had 14 units of blood . My family was told I might not come out of a coma, and prepared that if i did, I would probaly be brain damaged. Everyone is calling me the miracle lady. I am alive, and with no apparent loss of physical or intellectual functioning! Please feel free to share this. I will write you, and my other friends at woofmang as I can. I still tire very easily, and can only stay up at intervals.
Love, Bonnie


Thanks to all of you,
Margaret

Dear Bonnie,

Margaret and I have been writing back and forth wondering what has been going on with you. Thank God you came through the angioplasty but what a harrowing experience it must have been for you and your family. I've always believed in miracles and now I know one -- you. Take good care of yourself. God obviously has plans for you.

Hi, EVeryone,

I wanted to let you know that, unfortunately, I have not heard from Bonnie yet. I hope she is able to read your wonderful posts, but she will certainly love them when she does come back to us.

I will let you know as soon as I hear anything! Let's continue to send her our love and healing thoughts!
