Yeah Lucky. Whoopie must be in denial or perhaps she was expecting her mom to pass away. I thought her death was sudden, but maybe she had strokes before. I have recently had to face the fact that I will likely bury my parents and it just kills me inside. I pray they overcome their health issues and live to be 100!
My dad had the same surgery Dave Letterman had about the same time. Since then he's had 3 stints inserted. He then developed A Fib, which is an irregular heartbeat. They are treating it with meds. Anway, that's certainly TOO much information for you, but I just pray to keep my parents as long as possible.
