Aunt Marilyn had surgery early this morning. They told us yesterday they couldn't operate because she wouldn't survive. This morning they said they had no choice - if they didn't operate she would be dead in hours.
She pulled through the surgery, and her blood pressure has risen and stabilized. She is still hallucinating though (calling out and talking with my long-deceased grandma) and is completely unresponsive.
This would be the downside of living 2500 miles away. I want to be there with her.
