Chag Sameach

Welp, the good news is my mom’s doing really well and she’s home from the hospital. (Talk about a revolving door!) It wasn’t cardiac arrest exactly, but it was, essentially, a minor heart attack. The bad news is, her t-wave has become inverted and she somehow managed to bust up an artery, so they had to stick a tube in her to help her blood flow. This is apparently the result of myocardial ischemia, which, sadly, is a symptom of heart disease (which her mother suffers from as well). They’ll be treating her as an outpatient and doing more tests throughout the week. She’s doing really well though and is relieved to be home in time for the seder. You shoulda heard her in the hospital—all she could think about was making sure the brisket was properly cooked and that someone picked up our cousin with down syndrome from the home and brought him to dinner. She can be so selfless—it’s a crime this should have happened to her.

Anyhow, thank you everyone, SOOOOOO incredibly much, for your prayers and good wishes. She and I are both convinced that they are wholly responsible for her speedy recovery. Peace and blessings to all of you.

Chag sameach and gut yomtov, and thanks again, truly.

  1. man you shoulda been there. we did the misheberachs and i poppped over to the shaliach and whispered “Ita Zeisel bas Peska” into his ear. he looked at me all cockeyed and tried his best to repeat the name. he did an admirable job! when i went back to my seat, my neighbours were all “c’est qui cette Ita Zeisel?” these guys are all VERY old school. they’re barely getting up to speed with answering machines, let alone the internet, let alone some wanky blog! it was fun trying to explain it and all and i got a good laugh. later i felt bad because all this fun was instigated by a heart attack! but now i feel much better laughing about it all because i am convinced our modest prayers contributed in some small way to your mom’s recovery. so chag sameach Ita Zeisel bas Peska – ad me’ah veh essrim!
    now can i go back to taking the piss out of “mobius?”
