looking up

susanna's surgery today was successful. the doctors removed some more infected fluid from her lung (which they said looked like chicken fat--lovely), and said that her left lung is all clear of infection. they expect she will need to stay in the icu for a few more days, but then will be moved to a regular room.

in the realm of good news, the doctors feel susanna will recover quickly enough that she will be able to get on a plane to come to chicago for christmas.

my mom leaves at 7:45 tomorrow morning for a week with the family.
