Misty's mom has made it through surgery without too much trouble. Her blood pressure was way up, and she lost quite a bit of blood, but not enough to need a transfusion or anything like that. According to the doctors who performed the operation, her cancer seems not to have spread. We just have to wait a couple days for lab results to confirm that. In the meantime, she's groggy on morphine as she recovers at the hospital. I brought Emily over to visit, and that certainly brightened her mood. Emily's smile tends to do that.
