Hey Nancy, I will be praying for you and your family. All will be fine. Once the surgery is done you will feel so much better. You are probably asleep right now because it is late. Take care and all of us at HVJ are thinking of you!
Whats up! I hope you are doing well and reading all of your well wishers! You have a lot of friends holy crap!!!!!!!
Its a big day for me and you tomorrow and I will be thinking about you non stop!!!
No matter what or whatever drugs they give you you can't give up anything from the NanBen Oath!!!!
I love you a lot and am so proud of you!
You and Papa are the most inspiring and brave people I could ever imagine and it is so crazy that I get to grow up and learn from you! What a blessing!
I know this is hard on all of us but VERY SOON we will be in recovery and I can't wait for that because I will be able to say we did it and everything will be fun again!!!!
Whenever I have a presentation or am doing something scary or that requires confidence my mom tells me to act like I am Nanny, and it always works. I emulate you every day Nan and I hope I can live up to the accomplishments that you have done so far and so many more that you will!
Whenever I have a big test or something hard I always think, 24 hours or 48 hours and this will all be in the past. While this is obviously not the same I am thinking the same way. Just a short time and my Nan will be under a lot less stress and on the road to playing ping pong and fishing with me in Florida and working out at 141!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE YOU NANNY!!!!!!!
We are so proud and EVERYONE supports you. All we require from you is being brave and getting through this and ALL of us will take care of the rest I promise!!!!!
Don't know if you are still up or trying to go to sleep, but if we don't talk, I will be thinking of you tomorrow knowing you will be the star of the show! Funny how "attached we become to people we have never actually met. Bet you never thought you would be grateful for a bad aortic valve, but if it weren't for that...you might not know about that 95% blocked artery!!! 5% isn't much left you know!
Try to get some sleep...call me when the drugs wear off...you have both numbers.
Hugs and love....Linda
Nancy, hugs, kisses and prayers are being sent your way.... keep up the positive outlook and the desire to get back out there again.. we Love You and know that all will be fine.. Hugs & kisses... mmwwwaaaahhhh
Deb, Ron & Rocky too (of course)
Okay does the blessing over the hanakah candles count
That's the only Jewish prayer I know
I'll sing it tomorrow morning for you
Mickey said he will say a Jewish prayer and it won't be Kaddish - LOL
Knock em alive tomorrow
Love Linda and mickey
Good luck for tomorrow my lovey. You will do great positive attitude and some humor goes a long way! Ill be thinking of you. Soon you will be like me home and building strength to carry on with your life. Good luck!!!!
See Nancy...you can trust me completely, I knew you would ace it. So now on to tomorrow...you will ace that too. Want to know how lucky we are that we can be fixed??? The son-in-law of my hairdresser, 21 years old has just been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, already spred to his liver and lung and only 21 years old, only symptom was sudden onset of severe abdominal pain, they thought it was his appendix. So... I have decided not to complain about having to wait and am giving thanks to God that we can be fixed. Puts this in a whole new light. Now, as hard as it may be...you behave yourself tomorrow and don't make your surgeon laugh oo much, you want his hands very steady! Tell your girls to please keep us updated. You know we will be waiting to hear good news! God bless and many hugs!
So very lucky to know about what needs to be done before they go in. knowing you, it will make absolutely no difference. You are going to do great whatever they do. Once you get used to being a patient, after the cath. you are ready for tomorrow Thinking about you today and tomorrow.
See...that wasn't so bad. Its always better to find any problems before, not after, so I'm glad they will change your oil/filter and new fuel line at the same time. Don't want to be in the shop again anytime soon!
Well wishes from Kentucky...looking forward to hearing from you afterward!
We're getting close now, one day left! Let's get this over with so we can hangout and workout again as soon as possible!
I appreciate your bravery as a precedent for everyone in our family. Imagine if any of us have something wrong now we won't have anything to be scared of because Nan already has gone through something tough and was a leader for us. Very fitting for how you are in everything else!
I know it may not be fun to be the trendsetter but I know we all really appreciate your fearlessness!!
LOVE YOU NAN!!!!
I wonder if the surgeon will ask you if you are the Telephone Doctor!!!
The big event is finally here, it seemed like a long time away at one point, but not any longer. This Friday you will be in recovery and getting ready to start living with a healthy heart. (It will be a little worse for wear initially, but it is amazing how quickly the heart recovers!)
Will pray for you Nancy....You will definitely appreciate the humor as you recover! Sometimes that IS the best medicine. Can't believe your day is finally here...will be watching your posts. Hugs from Houston! Jamie Todor
I wanted to wish you the best for tomorrow and the surgery. Just so you know the surgery is the easy part. Recovery will be your challenge. And you family having a sense of humour is a gift that really will help. Just kep a pillow handy laughing to hard will hurt the first few weeks but is great for the soul.
Hi Nancy, Just wanted to say good luck to you.I have enjoyed reading your posts and will be looking forward to some good news. God will be with you. See you on the other side. Some day I will be there also.
So Nancy...it looks like it is your turn to shine! Keep all the details fresh in your memory for me...I'm counting on you to tell me the absolute truth! About everything! Wow, time sure has flown by the last couple of weeks! Try to behave yourself, but as I told Mitch...if you have to flirt...flirt, whatever it takes, lol!
Seriously, I know you will do fine, I will be praying for you. Tomorrow will be a piece of cake, honestly. Let me know how it goes. I'll swing back by tomorrow to hear how you fared. Good luck, hope everything is clear!
You are in my prayers Nancy...so is your surgical team!! With all the good thoughts and wishes and prayers, you'll have this thing beat.. I go Feb 21 for my AVR.. February is a great month!!...God Bless.... Steve Gail, Minnetrista,MN
Nancy...You are going to be a rock star during all this.
I really appreciate all the folks that have or will blaze the path for us soon to be on the other side of recovery.
Really do learn from your post and helps us open up to be honest on what we are feeling..Fears..Hopes..Mostly fears..haha. But I do feel better with all new friends I have made on here and we are bonded in a way that sometimes others around us don't understand.
