Emma’s new head

Good night, peeps. Sorry for no post today. Very busy day; not a lot to say. But I do owe you an update on the subject of yesterday’s post, Emma’s surgery.

I’m so glad to report that she came through the surgery with flying colors. According to her husband Neil, doctors said it went “beautifully.” They accomplished everything they had planned to do.

She is resting (trying to?) while fighting off a great deal of pain and sickness from her medications. Not fun stuff. But nobody said brain surgery was a walk in the park. Obviously, the long road to recovery has begun, but at least the risky part is behind her. I’m looking forward to visiting her when she is feeling better.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I believe that each one helped to make a difference.

And here’s Emma’s beloved Pitt Panther, exhibiting quite the fighting spirit. I have no idea why there seems to be a palm tree behind it. Just one of life’s mysteries, I guess. Sleep tight.
