I know not everyone is a huge fan of hers but I frequent her message board on a daily basis and have corrisponded with her via email for class projects and other friendly banter..
However, over the weekend she posted a request for prayers for her husband, George. I've lit a candle to help send positive healthy vibes towards his recovery and I'm hoping those that do believe in the power of prayer will keep him and her in their thoughs.

Dear ladies, George had a heart attack last night. He is stabilized right now, and I will update you as I am updated. Prayers will be very much appreciated.
Update Tuesday, March 17th 2009
George is doing well. Tests in the ER on Sunday night revealed that he had a clot in the right artery leading into his heart. They are
treating it conservatively with medication, and if he responds he will go home later this week. If there is further difficulty he may need a catherization, which frankly they don't like to do on octogenarians. He is very grateful for your prayers, and says he can feel the love surrounding him. And I thank you too. We have a wonderful little local hospital, and if they can't help they know just where to send you. Crittens Lane is the best place to live! I called 911 Sunday night, and because of where I live before the Emergency had arrived 4 of my neighbors on the street who belong to the squad were in my house within 2 minutes! We were so lucky!
