Y'all have no idea how much your kind thoughts, prayers, and jingles have boosted Carolyn's morale.

I just got back from the hospital, and Carolyn's doing OK, if still a bit groggy. She sends her love to all. The surgeon feels there is a good chance he 'got it all' and she won't even need chemo.

Again, our heart-felt thanks to all!
