Quick Update

My Mom's surgery went well - after 7.5 hours, she is minus a gallbladder, half a liver and several lymph nodes - and all the cancer that the doctor could see. She was given a spinal block during surgery for pain management, and is definitely feeling good at the moment...entertaining us with lots of loopy observations. Much relief is felt at the moment!

Thank you for all the lovely comments, emails and texts today - it really meant a lot to me. Our blogging community is the best!
