So anyway...

My aunt went into surgery at around 5. My wife told me some things I hadn't heard yet, but my mom told her. Like the fact that the docs were giving her one chance in five of making it through the surgery.

The doctor came out to talk to us at about 8:45, which seemed far too soon. They had said it would likely be a difficult 4-to-6 hour surgery...

But the doc seemed pleased. He said it was much better than expected and that it went well. She's in ICU now for recovery, and I haven't heard any news, so hopefully all is as well as can be.

I think despite the diabetes and her generally poor control of that, she still had her relative youth on her side. Hopefully the recovery and healing can progress well.
