Yes it is. If we had waited much longer to go to the hospital I would probably have lost her.

My wife is doing a little better each day. Still a long way to go, but she will get there.

When my wife first got out of the hospital she stayed in our son's house on the sofa for extra support. Today she feels better enough to start staying in the old school bus that we were converting into a mini-house before she got so sick, on our regular bed. :)

A slight setback: my wife's developed an infection in a small section of her incision. The doctor said it's just on the surface and has her on antibiotics.
Otherwise she is doing better.

I'll probably be doing another no-boil in the next week or so.
The plan is the same as the one that I did while my wife was in hospital, except I'm going to ramp up the o g to around 1.065 and use a lot more hops (probably centennial) and dry hop with cascades and/or ahtanum.

Yesterday the cardiologist said my wife is doing really well and doesn't need to see her again until June.
