Finally got to talk to someone at the hospital. Sandy did fine. Stable throughout the whole procedure, and has actually been up on her feet since coming out of the anesthesia. She can probably come home tomorrow. They're going to check her in the morning, and make sure she can keep some food down. The Dr. was going to try and push the needle out, but there was too much string attatched so they had to cut her. Thanks to everyone for your kind words and support. I'll continue to update you guys on her condition, and we can't wait to get her home.
