Saturday morning, our friend Lauren had a heart attack. She and Steve Steffens have been together for 20 years. It was bad, my friends. Very bad.
She is currently in ICU at St. Francis in Memphis.
There really are no words when you see people you love and care about go through a medical emergency. Steve and Lauren have a wealth of friends and family. The waiting room has been filled with well-wishers and the shock hangs in the air. We are reminded that this is a marathon and not a sprint.
The world changed for them both on January 2. And it changed for all of us that love and care about them.
Tom Petty got it right, the waiting is indeed the hardest part.
