As I sit down to type this week’s news, my husband, Bob, is resting comfortably in [Essentia Health/St. Mary’s] in Duluth. He had an emergency quintuple heart bypass on Friday, May 13. All went extremely well and he is recovering at a good rate. He looks great and even has his sense of humor back. Now for the long haul of therapy and return to good health. Thanks to all for their prayers and concern. We have so many friends who are there for us and we really appreciate all you have done.
