Well I thought I had posted this earlier but for some reason it didn't go through! Patrick came home today from the hospital and is doing well. Just some weakness but that's understandable. The doctor has him on 2 week's rest which means no golf, yard work, nothing strenuous and no driving for 5 days. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, visits and especially your friendships and our family! You all mean the world to us!! We truly know how blessed we are!! Love and hugs to everyone!

Carole Daigle called Jack and had a short talk with him.  Ann is in Rehab for a few days.  She is at West Minster with some kidney difficulties and she is somewhat confused.  Jack was given orders to go home and rest, he isn't doing all that well himself, he said that he has lost 25 pounds.  He fears there might be more to it than not eating right and getting good rest.  

Keep the Salvatos in your thoughts and prayers.

On 2 August 2017 about 12:00 – noon I went to Rex Hospital Raleigh NC and had a Procedure called a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement with the Edwards SAPIEN 3. The Dr, said I imedulated looked better also Sylvia and Selena said my color returned to my face. I feel much better now. If anyone has a valve problem I recommend having it done. Before it I could only walk about 40 to 50 steps and had to stop and catch my breath. Today I walked down to the road about 75 feet and back I have not been able to do that in 3 years.

Talked with Dan this morning.  He is home finally.  Got home Sunday, thought he would go home a few days before that, but he is home and enjoying his own bed.  Lungs are okay but still fluids in them and he has to take something to correct that for the next 30 days.  Everything was related to the fall he suffered some time ago.. Three ribs are broken in 7 different places. a couple of the breaks are mending okay.
