This hasn't really been the best week. On Monday Allen lost a soldier in his company, SGT Kraig Foyteck.

Tuesday morning, my father had heart surgery, fortunately everything went fine, though they did have to repair more than expected.

Tuesday evening, Allen's stepdad was in the ICU with problems with his heart. (I'm sorry, I don't know all the medical terms to explain further.) By Wednesday night he was out of ICU and on digitalis, which put his heart back into rhythm.

Apparently, my dad's heart still isn't beating correctly, and they are putting a pacemaker in his heart today.

The week has to get better, right?

Oh Angie! I am so sorry to hear about all these things. I was just reading the paper about the soldier after you left my house today. How very sad.

I also saw your letter to the editor. Nice job on that one.

I hope that the health problems in your families improve quickly!

I'm wishing I was there now with you both and I'll keep wishing that until Allen gets home. Then I'll be wishing I was with all three of you! Love, B/D/P
