Pam is having surgery today, the prognosis is good but I know how it feels to be in that situation.  Last weekend Pam had an artery leak in her abdomin, needless to say thats VERY serious. The initial prognosis was not good but they have since learned that one was wrong.  She is expected to recover but I know from having been there what a pain in the ass it is to be hospitalized for any length of time, and recovery from surgery is no cakewalk.
