Just spoke to Ruth - She's in the recovery room with Melanie, and Melanie's doing really well.

The first hoarsley whispered words out of Melanie's mouth were "Mom, how's Barry?" (I'm pretty sure the second words were "I need some damn Demerol!")

Barry's surgeon just spoke to David & Ruth a minute ago, saying that Barry's surgery was very successful - In fact, the kidney is already working well in Barry's body! Unbef'nlievable, and such a relief.

Melanie asked the doctor if Barry could be wheeled in right beside her in recovery - We love each other, and, given the opportunity, can never resist manipulating our environments; just a Miguel thing.

More after Barry's in recovery, Renee


  1. Congratulations! I'm so glad to hear that the surgery went sucessfully. Myself and the staff at Rhoda Goldman Plaza have been folowing the progress. I wanted to let everyone know that our thoughts and prayers have been with Melanie, Barry, and the rest of the Miguel family whom I'm sure have been on pins and needles as well.

  2. Congratulations to Barry and Melanie. How blessed they are to have the support of so many, in particular a mother's special love and support. Our wishes for a very speedy recovery and return to living the good life.
