Liz's surgery took six hours, but the surgeon tells me that it went well. It will be 10 days or more before we have the definitive results of the biopsies. Meanwhile, Liz is doing well. Beneath her completely bandaged head, her bright eyes and beatifically childlike smile are a welcome sight. She is having difficulty speaking, but we hope and expect that that will improve in the days ahead. Meanwhile, she is radiant and resting in the intensive care unit, but she's anxious to go home. We will be here, however, for several more days.
We are grateful to all those who have included Liz in their prayers.
