Alrighty, I'm up (actually, while setting my alarm I somehow managed to set my clock ahead an hour as well, so I first woke up at 4:30 and it took me awhile to realize this) ... I need to get dressed, we're leaving for the hospital in a half-hour.

My mother is having surgery on her thyroid, to remove it either partially or totally (there's a chance that the two tumors might be malignant, though they're probably benign), mostly because if the tumors swell, it'll choke her to death before we can help her.

It is difficult to imagine her in any other way than who she is now.
