ALIVE and grateful for it!

One week ago today, I was on the operating table for quadruple bypass surgery. Today, I woke up hungry for the first time since surgery, and my loving husband cooked a real breakfast which I could actually eat! Later today, we went walking OUTSIDE (just as far as the neighbor's mailbox and back) on a lovely fall day! Celebrate life, friends and loved ones. I now believe that it's way easier to die than I ever thought before and actually have a strange peace about that.

My heartfelt thanks go out to all family and friends who kept vigil and sent up all of the prayers for me. It is no exaggeration to say that I could have died a week ago. I did not, and I consider myself the recipient of a miracle in surviving but also another one in all of the love and concern sent my way.

For now, though, I honestly want to urge everyone to err on the side of caution always. The doctors were all wrong about me for years, as my heart condition got worse and worse. I went to numerous doctors, took all of the right (and wrong) tests, and I was told that my heart was fine as it continued to get worse. Keep going to the emergency room when you have symptoms, even if they are really unsual. One Friday night, a doctor you have never met will get it right.

If you are looking for a foreclosure in Cape Girardeau, Perry, N. Scott, or Bollinger counties, I am the region's most experienced REO agent. As the area's ONLY Fannie Mae direct listing agent, I list more foreclosure properties than any other agent in this MLS. I am among the few local agents approved to both list and sell HUD properties. Give me a call if you are looking for help with the purchase of a foreclosure property.

If you want up-to-the-minute real estate information, the only way to get it is to have an agent set you up on auto-notify with immediate delivery. Your listing information will come directly from MLS only when it comes from an MLS member. You willl not have to wait for the information to roll to those other websites, and you will not have to check multiple sources. It's free, so why not give me a chance to help you in your search?


NO OTHER SOURCE is as complete or as fast as your local REALTOR®’s source. This is not just an advertisement for REALTORS®--it is information about how the system really works.

Good morning, Gene! I have a laptop in bed with me and a cell phone beside me, now that I'm at home. I'm trying not to do much work, but I am playing on the internet. The laptop is actually too heavy, so I sort of scoot it back and forth. My daughter did get me an iPad and bring it to the hospital, so I could FaceBook. I am not good, yet, with the iPad. I figure I'll have it mastered by the time I'm back at the office, though. Updating Facebook has actually helped my daughter, because she is not getting nearly as many "how's your Mom" phone calls. You can probably imagine how overwhelmed she and my husband have been, trying to keep the business on track, answering their own calls, answering my cell phone, and covering my part of the work load.

...not to mention while they were trying to check on me at the hospital or now, at home...
