A quick post from Claudia's husband Bart

This may get me in trouble from my loving wife at a later time, but I need to quickly post this via my iPhone. It is 1:15 am and I am sitting in the emergency room awaiting Claudia's return from emergency surgery. We came in earlier this evening because Claudia's right arm was cd to the touch and nearly without pulse. A CT scan revealed a blood clot in her upper arm as well as a blood clot in her heart. The clot in her arm is being removed at this moment. The one in het heart presents more challenges for the days ahead.

If you are a person of faith, please keep her and our family in your thoughts and prayers in the days to come. We are strong people, but we are reminded tonight of how precious and fragile health and life are.

I know Claudia has many friends in the blogosphere. Thank you for sharing our concern st this time.

Bart

Bart, I am sure that if Claudia could have, she would have been blogging from the surgery table :) You both are my thoughts and hopes for a speedy fix and recovery! Take care.
