Default News: Anne doing OK

Anne's is doing OK. The trouble she had turned out to have been a mild heart attack. She's currently in the hospital, with the fine folks who took care of her when she had her knee replaced.

Oh, you wat to send a card?
Easy as cake:

Anne McCaffrey
Dragonhold-Underhill
Newcastle
County Wicklow
Ireland

Her daughter will get them to her.
Get well soon, Anne!

Yeah the subject freaked me out too. I'm glad to hear she's okay, not so glad to hear it was a heart attack though. Best wishes to her.

Get well soon, AnnieMac - and let the cats come and do their thing to comfort you. I'm sure that will help! At least, that's what my cat Dixie told me to tell you!
