The popcorn kernel is out! And we even got to bring it home as a souvenir. 🙂 Mickey was a real trooper, and seems to be completely back to normal already. I think I’m still recovering from a fairly sleepless night on Friday (the nurses were in and out of our room all the time, which didn’t bother Mickey of course, but since I was in bed with her it woke me up every time) followed by a Cooking Show in Buda and then in Austin on Saturday. But all is well! Thanks for your prayers.
