Barbara Bush.

Barbara Bush had open-heart surgery here in Houston today. Here is the Houston Chronicle's story and Methodist's press release. Thankfully everything went well and she is expected to be released from the hospital in 7-10 days.

I wouldn't ordinarily be posting about a former first lady's surgery, but the cool thing about it is that her doctor, Dr. Gerald Lawrie, also performed open-heart surgery on both of my parents. He was such a nice guy (and of course, a great doctor).

He has also operated on the Shah of Iran, the President of Turkey, the King of Belgium, and other royal figures. Glad to know my parents are in good company.

Best wishes to Mrs. Bush for a speedy recovery.
