For all of you wonderful people who sent me your support, prayers, and hugs recently, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Since my "real life" friends evidently don't want to be bothered with me, you guys have overflowed that void! It's still a waiting game with my brother. He has to undergo a transesophageal echocardiogram today to see IF they can dissect the aneurysm. It's in a very difficult spot to operate on and is surrounded by heart muscle, all of which is pressing on the artery. He had an angiogram yesterday with a stent placed, but that is not going to solve the problem. If they cannot dissect the aneurysm, he will basically be a walking time bomb until the "final event". It's very scary at the moment. I would like to ask that you keep Chuck in your prayers. He's only 51 years old and has only been married a year after having been divorced for over 25 years. He deserves a happy life!!! Thank you again, and I love you all!

Most days I can hold it together, at least in front of people at work. Today I...
