shanikka's DAH just telephoned me. The surgery took longer that usual because they were trying to do it all laparoscopically. They did so, she won't have a huge incision. They had to remove more of her colon than they planned BUT they did not have to put in an ostomy of any kind! DAH said when she wakes up she will be over the moon about that news! She's on the way to healing now. When she's able in a couple of days she'll visit this diary and also for those of you who don't know, I told her about her vigil diary last night. She left a comment.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
