Forgive me if someone already posted this. Just got a text from Jan’s daughter that surgery went well, she is off the heart/lung machine, the valve is functioning. Yay!September 26, 2012 at 9:07 pm #772345September 26, 2012 at 10:03 pm #772346September 26, 2012 at 10:12 pm #772347
Chicken soup, rolls and pumpkin bread waiting for you in the freezer, Jan. Just come home in one piece!September 26, 2012 at 10:20 pm #772348September 26, 2012 at 10:29 pm #772349September 26, 2012 at 10:46 pm #772350September 26, 2012 at 11:34 pm #772351September 26, 2012 at 11:53 pm #772352September 26, 2012 at 11:54 pm #772353September 27, 2012 at 12:08 am #772354September 27, 2012 at 1:06 am #772355September 27, 2012 at 4:17 am #772356
Has anyone thought about doing a mealtrain for Jan once she comes home? There is an easy website to sign up on mealtrain.com and it would ensure her food for a time while she recovers…September 27, 2012 at 4:37 am #772357
jan: get well soon, please. we need your spunk and wit to liven the place up. ;)September 27, 2012 at 4:47 am #772358
Yea Jan! Hang in there and a quick recovery. I met you with JoB at a pancake breakfast some time ago and seen you at a distance since.. Hope to see you close up in the near future. Been wondering all day how your surgery went. With all the support on here you should recover quite well. Best wishes.September 27, 2012 at 5:11 am #772359
Just realized Jan might not want total strangers from the forum (like me) bringing her food when she is in a vulnerable state of recovery. But maybe her closer friends can still do a meal train…September 27, 2012 at 5:26 am #772360September 27, 2012 at 5:45 am #772361September 27, 2012 at 3:26 pm #772362
kgdlg, I met some of my best friends from this Forum, when we were all total starngers, and I was in a vulnerable state. :-)

Mike, I know, I am more of an onlooker here only commenting sporadically, but it is clear that there is a lot of mutual support between many people in the forums, and that restores my faith in humanity, often. Which is why I suggested the meal planning tool. But then I realized that if it were an open tool, anyone could show up at her house at any time, and maybe that is just a little too open? I hate that this world makes me think like this, but sometimes it just does…September 27, 2012 at 5:16 pm #772364September 27, 2012 at 9:23 pm #772365
Hey all, thanks for the kind words. JanS (my mom) is doing well, talked to her earlier today. She’s not a fan of talking on the phone because she’s hooked to so much stuff, feels like she was kicked in the chest by a mule, and she can’t move around much yet to look online, but I know she appreciates all of you.
A meal train would probably be VERY welcome. Also, there’s always this link to contribute to her bills and living expenses while she recovers. http://www.gofundme.com/14rlwsSeptember 28, 2012 at 2:30 am #772366
This photo was sent to me by WSB member 2 Much Whine, who created a special glass object in Jan’s honor.
He adds the following:
Since Jan got her heart all patched up it seemed a heart of glass would be a fitting gift from her WSB friends.September 28, 2012 at 3:50 am #772367September 28, 2012 at 4:22 am #772368
