I've been holding off on posting this because it seems to be an ongoing thing but as some of you know libby had a heart attack a couple of days ago and is back in the hospital in marquette, her prognosis isn't as good as I'd like, her doctor said that the complexity of her situation with the poor condition of her arteries, her bad kidneys and now a heavily damaged heart makes her survival tenuous at best. He said for us to be cautiously hopeful but if she pulls thru this latest set of problems her recovery will take months provided no additional complications set in. This effectively stops any travel plans we had, my primary focus now is her care.

All we can do is pray that she improves. She has the will to live, and along with prayer, the long recouperation time will be successful, I pray.
Cody, your faithfulness to care for her and to place her at the top of your priority list, give a shining example to us all, and I honor you for everything and pray for you that your energy will continue, as will your wisdom to care for Libby.
We support you, and will hold you. Anything more that we can do, please ask. I am sure that someone will be there for you, any time.
For some, patience is a virtue.
Dealing with me, it is required.
Thank God - He is always patient.

I am so sorry to hear this. I haven't been around as much, lately, so I missed the info before it "hit the papers." That is really sad. She has had a very rough go of it. I will still be praying for both of you.
I am glad that you made the right decision to not travel. That must have been tough for you, but you will NEVER, EVER regret that decision.
God bless both of you.

Cody, words about fail me. As a non-religious man, all I can say is keep
faith alive, and that each day infallibly brings a new dawn with new opportunities. I went through a very similar challenge earlier this year, and what got me through was keeping on doing each thing, whatever it was, one after the other.
All the best,

Just a short update, I got a chance to get an outline from her doctor of what could be done and what his thoughts are, he is scheduling her for dialysis today, that will help her kidney function and take some of the stress off her heart, tomorrow she is going to have an MRA so they can get a clear and new picture of the condition of her arteries, the next day she will again have dialysis, they are approaching the idea of putting in stents into the blockages where her arteries enter her kidneys, that seems to be critical to her survival, very few doctors do that surgery, one of the doctors that does it is at mayos, he has agreed to review the MRA and possibly fly into marquette and place the stents, this is a situation where the patient can't go to the doctor, the doctor will come to the patient, her doctor says that this may be her only chance of survival. The surgury comes with a high degree of risk because of the condition of her arteries but she has almost no chance of survival without it. It would be done in the next few days if it is determined that it can be done and she hangs on for that long.

Julie and I are just plain SAD at this whole situation for both of you.
Hang in there....I know you will.
We pulled out some pictures from Bussin when we were all hanging out at one of the famous, NCBOB, FLCliff and Cody's pot luck lunches, that the Gals put together for us.
That was a great couple of days and some mighty fine eating.
I remember talking to Libby and she was worried about
, killing yourself working on the coach.
Now were worried about Her.
We sure hope you get a "miracle"
