Karen's doing great. I have not seen her yet. Surgery is over, she did great. I just met with Chamberlain. My head is spinning so here are some things he said "this is one of the biggest operations you can have", "everything went according to the plan", "she lost very little blood", "this is the first or second biggest operations he's ever done", "she has no visible cancer"!!! This guy has done an amazing amazing job and we are truly thankful to him and his team.
The risk now is infection so he did warn that visitors wash hands, and don't obviously come to the hospital if you have a cold/flu/bug of any kind.
She'll be in intensive care tonight, then a regular unit tomorrow.
I can go see her in about an hour. Teresa/Catherine I assume one of you will update mom and pop Shanahan. I need to go grab a bite. It DOES NOT get any better than this.
