Thank you everyone, for your concern about Zoe!
She and I are both still alive--I've been fighting a lovely stomach virus (thank you, Dad, for giving it to me), and she's been recuperating from her surgery. We've both been sleeping a lot.
A much more amusing and detailed post about Zoe after her surgery will be forthcoming, hopefully tonight, as soon as Chris goes out and buys new batteries for my camera. Yes, we have pictures. =)
