Good to the last drop

Today is my friend, Teresa's birthday.  Unfortunately her husband had a massive heart attack this past week so he went to the urgent care on Tuesday (he wouldn't go over the holiday weekend even though he wasn't feeling well), and they immediately sent him by ambulance to the hospital.  They told him that he has so much heart blockage and damage they aren't sure how much they can do for him.  Each day, there has been some excitement.  This is my friend that I had the surprise 25th Anniversary dinner for back in May so I am so glad that my friends and I did that.  I just keep hoping and praying.  My plan today is to visit my daughter at college who is struggling with the adjustment to college life.
