Yesterday the phone rang exceptionally early. I grabbed it in a state of expatriate freak-out, expecting news of a car accident or something. It was my mother, who's usually excellent about this sort of thing. Turns out that she is going to be having carotid artery-clearing surgery in the very near future. Her carotid arteries are 90% occluded, and her side of the family has a history of strokes.

Anybody have any stories/experiences related to this? The Internet is surprisingly terse about it. Possibly because the older generation that has this surgery isn't as wired. She should have ample support in the USA, but I'm still twitchy. I am also trying to put together an indulgent care package for her: her escapist reading favorites are "gentle mysteries where there aren't any murders". So any book recommendations are very welcome too.
