Default the first POOKIE88 update!!!

just talked to her mom, and pookie is out of surgery [on schedule!] and in recovery. she's expected to be there all night, because of the extensive surgery. right now, she has a breathing tube in, and that's probably because she's so heavily sedated.

everything went the way it was supposed to, but this was a very extensive, serious operation. keep those prayers coming! next update will probably be tonight.

if anyone wants pookie's real name and the hospital [makes it easier to send cards and flowers, ya know!], please IM me...

Thanks for posting the update, Jiffy

Oh I'm so glad she's okay.
