Hospital Jitters

My mom just went in for a cerebral angiogram and I'm sitting here nervous. This is an invasive surgery where the doctor will go up into her femoral artery (in her leg), stick a tube up through her veins to her neck, then inject a dye into the veins of her brain, so that they may make sharp, clear images of her brain. She's scared to death, but she has a wonderful doctor working on her, and it's far better than a brain biopsy, her only other option at the moment.

Shockingly enough, Mom would prefer not to have her brain cut into, if she can avoid it.

So, I'm sitting her waiting to find out how it goes. Please let the doctor come out with good news. Please?
