Just wanted to let you know that MJ had her surgery earlier today and is home now resting. The surgery went well, though the infection was worse than they thought so we are glad that the surgery was scheduled so it could be dealt with. The infection had reached the bone so the surgery, as I understand it, was a bit more invasive than planned, and the recuperation will probably a bit lengthier than anticipated.
MJ is whacked out on vicodin and sleeping now and I'll try to keep you updated as to how the recovery proceeds. Please feel free to leave your well wishes in comments, I'll need some way to keep her from doing work around here, she's not a good patient! :)
