Subject: JEANIE PAYTON UPDATE!

DEAR CLASS,

I WENT FOR MY FIRST CARDIOLOGIST VISIT YESTERDAY AND GOT A GOOD
REPORT. I DON’T SEE HIM AGAIN FOR SIX MONTHS.

IT IS STILL UNBELIEVABLE THAT I WAS THE VERY SICK LADY THEY KEEP
TELLING ME I WAS. I HAVE FELT SO GREAT SINCE THE STENT WAS PUT IN
SO I GUESS WE REALLY DO NEED OXYGEN AND BLOOD FLOW. : )

ON A SERIOUS NOTE I AM SO SO BLESSED FOR THE WAY MY SITUATION
HAPPENED. THE DR. SAID MY SITUATION WAS TOTALLY UNPREDICTABLE AND NO
TESTS UP UNTIL THE EVENT WOULD SHOW. THE KEY IS LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
AND GET CHECKED OUT ASAP.

I WANT TO SINCERELY THANK EVERYONE FOR THEIR PRAYERS, CALLS, THOUGHTS
AND CONCERNS AND THE MANY BEAUTIFUL AND FUNNY CARDS WHICH I’VE ENJOYED
SO MUCH.

WE HOPE TO SEE ALL OF YOU SOON.

JEANIE
