I just wanted to let everyone know that while my mom made it through surgery just fine, she is now having some unrelated health problems. Silvieon4 is busy taking care of her, but we all hope she'll be able to get back to blogging soon.
I know that both Silvies consider many of you friends, and my mom asked me to keep you informed. If you want more information, please post a comment to this post with your email address and I'll get back to you personally. (I won't approve the comment, so you don't have to worry about your email address being published.)
