This is Lisa typing from Flagler Hospital, where Mom is out of surgery and drinking apple juice and coffee. :-) Here's a message from the Woman of the Hour herself:
"All is well. I'm so glad this is done. It really was, all things being considered, very easy. The team here at Flagler is great!"
I'm sure Mom will post more in a few days when she's feeling more rested. Thank you to everyone for all of your thoughts, prayers and good wishes!
