I was away from my blog and home for a month while my husband went through an experimental open heart surgery to rebuild his heart, but more likely, to prepare him for a heart transplant. We are so blessed that our wonderful surgeon Dr. Timothy Icenogle and the Transplant Team (Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, Spokane, Washington) were able to repair the heart, surprising even them. Mike will return to a normal life! We are in shock, awe, and grateful to everyone who stood by us through prayer and friendship.
As soon as things settle down a bit, I'll return to being MaryAnn the Author and Educator. Right now, I'm MaryAnn the Tired and Grateful.
