We're here!

My first blog ... ever ... If you haven't guessed by now, this is not Shannon. I am code named "Tall Vanilla Bean."

'Tall," because of the greater than normal vertical distance from the ground to the top of my head, or perhaps for my imposing, iconic, almost super-human, chiseled-from granite stature.

"Vanilla," because of my nerdy 'whiteness.' Yeah, that's pretty much right on target.

"Bean," because of similarities to Mr Bean. Well ... actually it's just a beverage at Starbucks ... but a fellow can dream ... can't he?

Now that introductions are out of the way. A long drive to Charleston is behind us. We are now at the hospital. Shannon has left me here in the waiting room to get her a venti-mocha-angiogram (extra hot) with two pumps of contrast dye (and a side of whipped cream). Thanks everyone for your prayers.

That's it for now.

I heard about Shannon from AmyB. and will be praying for her and adding her to my prayer blog. I will be watching for your updates on her.

My husband had a triple bypass 9 years ago- I know it's not the same thing- but I remember how scared he was. 9 years later he is doing great!
