Penelope's Heart Took A Lickin' But Kept on Tickin'


Hi everyone! I wanted to write a very quick note to say I will be taking a little break. I had a heart attack on Tuesday morning. Luckily, I was whisked to BI Deaconess for heart surgery to repair a blocked artery and everything went very well. I am completely overwhelmed by the awesome support of my friends and family, and reminded of how blessed I am.

Huge thanks to everyone for love and prayers!
In the immortal words of Arnold Schwarzenegger, I'll be back!

Hey everyone! Had another heart scare and had to go back to the hospital, but I am home again and everything's OK.

Sheesh! This is not how I expected to spend my summer vacation.

Hope you are all doing well. Thanks for all of the good wishes!
