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.
