Thank each and everyone of you for your prayers, thoughts and good wishes sent our way. The surgery, 16 hours ago, went very, very well. The find doctors were able to remove a lot of scar tissue which was causing a tremendous amount of pain, fix a few things, and in less than 3 hours got my son into the recovery room. He was moved to his own room around lunch, and though well drugged for the pain, being in and out of consciousness, he is doing exceedingly well. I know it was all the good energy, thoughts and prayers on his behalf that helped make this possible.

He'll be in the hospital for 5-7 days, depending on his pain levels and how well he's mending. But in all, gratefully, a most successful day. It has taken two long years to get to this point--finding a doctor who was willing to risk the surgery and a brilliant surgeon and hospital staff to make such an operation such a success.

We all, family and friends, thank each of you for all your prayers. May you be blessed for such generous kindness.

I'll try to catch up with eveyone as I can ... but know most of all, how deeply I appreciate every one of you.

Beautiful and glowing painting Lin. Such delightful details and yet still in the background a looser, free feeling. Love that combination and the combination of colors.

Such a relief to finally have Mike's medical problem diagnosed and treated. I hope he will recover quickly and completely.
Big hugs,

Thank God, everything went well. You must be so relieved, that's an understatement. Have a glass of wine and pick up your brush.

Take care Lin,
