In other news - tmi?

Barbar underwent surgery today. She is now in ICU, and is expected to remain in the hospital for at least a week to recover from the surgery. They removed her right kidney, which was swelled to the size of a child's football, and her gallbladder, and then neatly arranged her small intestines (which had gotten all kinked up -- the resulting pain being the proximate cause of this hospital stay) in the space available, and sewed her all up, with various drainage tubes in place.

I'm writing it here, because the first time Flar gave me all the details, I forgot them.

The doctor thinks she will feel much better, once she has recovered from surgery. But her hospital stays always seem to lean towards the long end of time estimates that the doctors give, so she'll probably be there for two weeks more.
