Sis just had surgery for two brain aneurysms. She has known for some time she needed to loose some weight and get her blood pressure down but like others, just put it off. It finally "caught up with her". She is lucky in that they got them repaired before they caused her serious problems. The bleed was small so she will probably not have many deficits. For that, we are most thankful.
I will share this with her when I see her this next week. When Sis lived in Holland, Mi., she walked all of the time. They have walking/bike paths everywhere which encourages people to be more active. Wish all Cities were like this.
