She Made It

Mom made it through surgery.

The doctor said she was (and I apparently quote) "A tough old bird with a strong constitution." She's in the ICU and is not out of danger yet, but the doctor removed a tumor, took out a section of perforated bowel and told my brother if my mother hadn't had the surgery today, she would have been dead in two or three days.

Mac is working to get me up there as quickly as possible. As he said, "I'm glad I'm bringing you up here to be with her, and not to bury her."

So am I.

To all the possible and potentially good gods out there, to the universe which may or may not notice. Thank you.

But even more to all of you. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I am exhausted and I am heading to bed.
