hospital talk  
Well, K's niece came through surgery great. They removed the bumps and the initial guess is that they're from an infection that got under her skin at the hospital where she was born. Poor little cutie has a big long cut on her neck and bruises around her eyes from having them taped shut. But, with any luck, she'll be be back home soon.

My brother, on the other hand, is under the knife as we speak, getting his chest cracked for bypass surgery. I'm a little nervous about it and of course I've chosen this time to lose my cell phone.

Glad the niece is okay. Sorry to hear your brother has to go through that, and you too.

I'm very glad to hear about K's niece. I'm sure she'll recover nicely.

I will keep a good thought for your brother. I'm sure he'll come through okay.

All my best wishes and hopes that everything goes well.

And, hey, you gave us an extra ass on Two-For-Tuesday, so karma is bound to reward you. :-P

So how is your brother? Did everything go OK?

Have you known anyone else (parent, grandparent) who had bypass surgery? If you don't know what to expect, the first few days can really floor you. It's a major operation, and the patient often looks like shit right afterward. Like they're on death's bed, actually. But after a few weeks, he'll feel much, much better than he did before the operation. (Of course, if you know someone who went through it, you already know this. In which case, I'm wasting your time and mine. I'm a dirty, dirty time-waster.)

Yes, thank you! Posting update now.

And thanks for the warning! His youngest daughter, who has barely left his side since he went in, couldn't bare to see him the way he looked right after the surgery so I was a little prepared, but a lot of warning is good for me.
