On Friday evening I was delighted to run into two friends of mine from Landenberg. They were smiling and looked great even though they had just been through a rocky few days. Between the husband's heart attack, stenting procedure and then a bad reaction to blood-pressure medication, they had visited three hospitals -- Jennersville, Brandywine and Christiana -- in the space of a week.
"And the week's not over!" joked the husband.
His wife, who of course has been terribly stressed out, shot him SUCH A LOOK.
I shouldn't have been surprised by his fatalism; this is a guy who has the Grim Reaper tattooed in green on his forearm.
