Susan's Road to Recovery

Mom recently suffered a major heart attack.  Her wonderful team of doctors have decided that the best option for her is a LVAD pump.   She will undergo open heart surgery for the pump to be placed and she will have it for the rest of her life.  

The recovery from this surgery is lengthy and intense.   She will be released from the hospital after a couple of weeks, but is required to stay near the hospital, in Portland, with round the clock care for an additional period of time.   We have asked friends and family to volunteer to come and provide this care for mom during this time.   We are also requesting donations to help pay for lodging and food for mom and her caretakers.  

Anything would be incredibly appreciated including prayers and positive thoughts for a safe surgery and speedy  recovery.
