Hi, all -
Blake, Kim's husband, *just* sent me the following email:
Kim is out of surgery and Dr. Smith says it went very well. He says that it was very routine with no complications. She is in recovery now, so it will probably be at least an hour before she gets a room and I get to see her.
Kim wanted me to be sure and let you know when the surgery was over. Thank you for all of your encouragement to Kim. I know that she really appreciates you.

So -- three cheers for another new Switch Sister! I'll be calling the hospital later today to try to talk to Kim directly if she's up for it, and I'll post again at that point.
